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.

TerraTec's bizarrely named vinyl ripper

TerraTec iVinyl

TerraTec has introduced another turntable to vinyl interface, and they've obviously run out of good names. Ladies and Gentlemen, I am pleased to introduce the £70 PhonoPreAmp iVinyl. It just slides off the tongue, doesn't it? They obviously realized that sticking the letter 'i' on the front of a word was becoming cliche and decided to go OneStepFurther.

Ignoring the name, it's a nifty little USB-powered box. The design is vaguely reminiscent of the Mac Mini (hence the 'i' in the name, methinks). The iVinyl takes the output from your decrepit old turntable and immortalizes it into shimmering 24bit/96 kHz mp3 format - until your next hard drive crash, anyway. The bundled SoundRescue and CD Spin Doctor software allows you to filter out the hum, crackles and pops that make vinyl charming.
