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.

11 Reasons To Buy Music On Compact Disc

1. Purchasing a CD makes you seem clinically insane eccentric, especially when your new album is four times the size of your iPod nano.

2. CDs are rarely copy protected so you can load them onto whatever devices you have without risking arrest or enormous civil penalties.

3. You get cover art and a shiny new paper insert to lick. Or maybe that's just me.

Racks4. CDs are a great way to back up your music collection without resorting to external hard drives or, um, DVD-Rs.

5. CDs are encoded in uncompressed PCM audio, an ideal source for mp3 / ogg vorbis / AAC copies.

6. You can sell the damn things whenever you feel like it.

7. Removing the shrink wrap will help satiate your irrational consumer urges without going broke.

8. Flipping through racks of discs is more fun than the telephone book precision of an online music store. You never know what mis-filed gems you'll stumble across.

9.  You'll still be able to play a CD in ten years... assuming you can find an optical drive, of course.

 11. You can play a CD in a friend's car without needing an FM transmitter, flash key or three miles of tangled input cable.

Of course, none of this helps when the only place to buy CDs within 20 miles of my house is Walmart, where the buyers seem to have an icky obsession with Miley Cyrus.
