We started out with mention of my stylish Home Gadget Geeks shirt, then got into talking all about headphones and earbuds::
Bose QuietComfort 35 (Series II) Wireless Headphones, Noise Cancelling – Black
Newest version, with a Google Assistant button.
Bose QuietComfort 35 (Series I) Wireless Headphones, Noise Cancelling – Black
Great for listening to podcasts and music while flying.
BÖHM Wireless Bluetooth Over Ear Cushioned Headphones with Active Noise Cancelling – B76
Great for listening to podcasts while mowing and snow blowing.
TinkerTry’s DIY solution for listening to podcasts while mowing, since affordable Bluetooth headphones weren’t a thing yet.
Sennheiser HD 424
Sounded great for music and had some real bass, but open air design means others around you hear you too, which doesn’t go over well with my college roommate.
Now for the non-headphone portion of the podcast, a nostalgic look back at 1970s-2000s tech.
Computers and accessories
A close look at the innards of the IBM PS/2 Model 50, which feature a lot of firsts in the PC marketplace including:
- Intel 286 processor
- PS/2 ports for keyboard and mouse
- 20MB hard drive
- 1.44MB 2.5” floppy drive
- Micro Channel architecture (proprietary, making add-in cards pricey)
Various tape backup devices and hard drives featuring clumsy SCSI connectors.
Hand-held 1 and 2 player games of the early 1980s by Nintendo, TOMY, and more.
