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.

Track Santa With NORAD


North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) keeps their eyes on the skies to warn against bad guys for the United States and Canada.  Since the close of the cold war, they perhaps have less to do in their mysterious mountain complex.  This time of year they turn their highly secret resources toward a more benevolent, yet equally mysterious airborn unknown.  The men and women over at NORAD turn their radar dishes, UHF antennas, and kaleidoscopes toward the heavens to track Santa during his worldwide journey on Christmas Eve.

CmccccIf your children need extra persuasion that Santa is near, click over to noradsanta.org throughout the day and see where Santa is on his trip throughout the world.  I'd love to see for myself when Santa is "escorted into Canadian airspace by jet fighters", but alas my mother doesn't have "the interwebs".  Can someone please call me when Claus has entered Chicago (Berwyn, really...) airspace?
