Few people have heard of it, yet many consider John Blankenbaker's KENBAK-1 to be the first commercial personal computer.

Koss introduced these headphones over 40 years ago, and they remain affordable favorites to this day.

TeleQuest Fiero Plus Phone


The 80's brought phone deregulation to the US, allowing anybody to manufacture telephones.  The look of phones quickly departed from the staid look of the old Ma Bell stalwarts, and evolved into anything that designers could fashion out of plastic.  The market was flooded with cheapie phones that didn't look like much of anything, while others took the opportunity to create something interesting.

Fiero_phone2 The Fiero Plus (I'm guessing that the phone earned a "plus" designation because of cutting edge features like redial and phone number storage) has the rather unmistakable lines of the 80's.  Don Johnson would look equally at home using this phone as Grace Jones. 

Check out the cool slanted number pad and how the phone receiver melds into the overall sports car look of the phone.  Hang up a Nagle print, bust out your little black book, and let all your girlfriends know that you're hungry like the wolf.
