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.

Seventy Years of Spam

In the days before t'interweb, Spam was pink processed meat that came in can and forever immortalized in the Monty Python sketch of the same name - "Well, there's egg and bacon; egg sausage and bacon; egg and spam; egg bacon and spam; egg bacon sausage and spam; spam bacon sausage and spam; spam egg spam spam bacon and spam; spam sausage spam spam bacon spam tomato and spam..."
For me, and because I'm of a certain age, Spam was always school dinners with plate sized slabs of once upon a creature, sometimes with chips (fries), sometimes with vegetables (boiled) and strangely, always with vinegar!

Well Spam's back (actually it never went way) and if you thought that technology had moved us away from meat in a tin and onto organic mung beans from the future, think again - Spam's 70 years old, 7 billion cans have been produced to date, its got a new website and now even comes in healthier low sodium and 'lite' variants.

If you really like to carry your meat around in armor plating, stylish 70th Anniversary tins are available now. Ring pulls at the ready -  pass me the vinegar!!! [Giles runs the web's coolest Super 8 resource: onSuper8.org]
