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

Retro Thing TV: Hallmark Christmas Ornaments

If you've got a few more people on your Christmas list and you just don't know what to get them, perhaps a visit to your local Hallmark store's ornament aisle may help. While many of their ornaments are the traditional sort, there are a large number of retro-themed decorations for the retro fan in your life. Looking for Superman or a classic Barbie to adorn your tree? How about a Harley Davison bike, or a Lionel train?

There are many to chose from... and these aren't cheesy toylike recreations. Most boast excellent model work and paint finishes. Hallmark sent us a box to look through, and we found some that you might enjoy as well. The benefit of waiting until the last minute like this is that many of these ornaments are now on discount, so it may be worth it to squeeze a visit to your local Hallmark in between everything else you've got to get done today.

By the way, our usual video host seems to have hit the egg nog a little early, so I used YouTube for this installment of Retro Thing TV.

Happy Holidays everyone!
