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.

Star Trek Theme On Theremin

Here's a great little minute of video. We live in miraculous times. When Star Trek was on the air, creating the transporter effect was time consuming and expensive. These days on YouTube a guy not only beams himself into some classic Trek footage, he brings along his Theremin and does a really nice rendition of the classic theme. Sometimes folks think that the original spooky vocal effects of the signature tune were done on a theremin. Now you can hear how cool that would have been.

Today the new take on Star Trek's origins hits theaters worldwide. I'm not a huge Trekkie, but I have a lot of respect for what the series accomplished in the 60's, what it meant to the future of SF fandom, and the (mostly) terrific feature films & spin-off series. I'm going to give the new flick a chance, though I have a feeling I'll watch much of it with mild suspicion and a Spock-like cocked eyebrow. [thanks for the tip, Sara!]
