Plusdeck EX Cassette to MP3 Converter
Cassette decks are just about equitable to the stone ages, especially with the immersion of high def DVD.  The Plusdeck-EX converts your favorite analog cassette tapes to MP3 via USB.  It can also handle records, radio and more all thanks to its USB sound card, which also allows you to configure the audio up to 7.1 channels.  Not exactly an advance in audio engineering, but a nice option for those analog audio dinosaurs.

Available here for $260.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
