Retro Phone Handset

ThinkGeek Gadgets

Dial "R" for Retro

Yeah, we know all about bluetooth headsets for cell phones, but forget that stuff! We have here the latest development in cell phone technology and it's a big hunk of beautiful plastic. An accessory for your phone that you can really grab onto. Something with heft and that good-old-American solid construction feel - like a 1972 Cadillac.
The Retro Phone Handset is a new production replica of the Western Electric 500-series model, which was the classic phone handset for several decades. It's been slightly modified to work with the headset jack of most cell phones (or via a "hands free" adapter kit, sold elsewhere). Just plug-in and dial - or for added effect, put your cell phone in your pant's pocket - then it looks like you're talking on a phone connected to... well, who knows?

Also has these great features.

2.5mm jack will work with most phones (Motorola, LG, Samsung)
Connection can also be made using a "hands free" adapter kit (not included)
No batteries required
Includes: handset and classic curly phone cord with connector

No, I will not fix your computer

Tell Them How You Really Feel

There is nothing more frustrating on this earth than constantly being asked to help other people with their petty computer problems. Of course if your job description dictates that you have to fix other peoples computers, then there is nothing so frustrating as being forced to do so ;)

"Hey Mark, I don't have a modem and can't connect to the Internet, can you fix this?"

"I removed some of the pins from my monitor cable because it didn't seem to fit right, now it's not working at all...can you fix my computer?"

Hey Sally, Can you fix my Internet, everytime I visit a website it says my host is unknown"

A Cassette Deck for the PC
The PlusDeck 2 is a full-logic cassette deck for your PC. Use it to archive your old cassette tapes of 80s hair bands into digital media files for playback on your PC. Or better yet, archive your favorite audio files or streams onto cassette - perfect for playback in your '78 Midget that is still not sporting an in-dash CD player. (Those of you still in the 8-track days will have to keep waiting for a PC-friendly solution I'm afraid...)

Myself, I see the PlusDeck as the ultimate in retro-cool PC mods. Add a CoolerMaster Musketeer for the analog gauges, and you've got some nice old-school sweetness in your modern day gaming rig.

Homer da Vinci Poster

Vitruvian Homer

A long time ago, a Roman guy named Marcus Vitruvius Pollio (sort of like “pollo” which means chicken in Spanish – mmmmm…..chicken), made a list of body proportions. Then a bit later, but still a long time ago, Leonardo da Vinci corrected some of them and sketched the Vitruvian Man. And now we have Vitruvian Homer – who updates this classic study of proportions, and distorts it to today’s standards.

Homer is backed by his favorite food: a donut, the universal symbol of unity and weight gain. In Homer’s outstretched arms, he holds the four key ingredients to happiness in this world: a hotdog, a can of beer, a pastry, and a remote control. But the best feature of this immortal poster is the look on Homer’s face. Is he deep in thought, or just confused? Is he pondering the complexities of life, or just wondering how his fig leaf is staying in place?
