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.

Club Nintendo Resurrects The Game & Watch LCD Handheld

Shouldn't it actually be 'Balls'?

Japanese Club Nintendo members who have reached Platinum status will receive a brand new Game & Watch LCD game. Well, it's not actually a new game. It's a reissue of Ball, the very first G&W title to hit shelves way back in April, 1980. It's powered by a CR2032 watch battery which should be good for months of simulated juggling.

Truth be told, I'm not a huge fan of the early single screen Game & Watch series. I think they hit their stride when Nintendo unveiled dual screen games like Donkey Kong (1982) and Mario Bros (1983). Still, this is a nice perk for Japanese Nintendo aficionados who've accrued more than 400 points during the year.

As for the rest of us, we're apparently out of luck.
