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.

Commodore 64 Returns To Chicago Suburbs September 26th

The only thing missing is my head buried deep in those boxes!

Soon Chicago's western suburbs will be host to a great Commodore 64 show with some of the finest C64 luminaries in attendance. Oh, and I'll be there too. Vic 20's, Amigas, and other retro computers are welcome, but be ready to celebrate the best selling computer of all time.

The Emergency Chicagoland Commodore Convention 2009 is on September 26th from 8am to 1am on Sunday. Yup - the bleeps and bloops know how to party all night. There will be dealer tables, demonstrations, and lots of systems set up for playing games and checking out new projects. Admission is... get this... free!

Isn't this still what computers cost? Mind you, the event is not just about reliving the C64's past. You can bear witness to some of the newest innovations on the 27 year old platform... and yes, there are many. Did you ever think that you'd see the ol' breadbox with an ethernet connection? Or how about an MP3 player? Or playing video from a hard drive?

It's all amazing, and amazingly fun - even for those of us who never had a C64 back in those heady days. I'll be hanging out a good chunk of the day & well into the night (that's when I'm the least appropriate), so please make sure to find the loud bald guy and say hello.
