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.

Introducing The Ace Typewriter & Equipment Co.


Thom Nevarez writes, "Ace Typewriter & Equipment Company has been the typewriter repair shop in Portland, Oregon for approximately fifty years and may be the only repair shop on the West Coast."

Thom plans to offer an extensive gallery of typewriter images for casual visitors on the Ace website, but their main business is equipment sales, replacement ribbons and a repair service to keep these beautiful vintage machines clacking along happily for years to come.

It almost looks like there's a USB port on the back panel...

Ace proudly proclaims, "You’ll have to come into our shop to see our grand selection of manual machines, rare machines, display-only machines, and even the best selection of R.C Allen adding machines." And in a nod to the way things used to be, they only accept cash and local checks.

Ahh, the wonders of a floating shift key.
