Koss Porta Pro Wireless headphones review: The retro re-do that mostly works

They’re retro, but that doesn’t make them outdated.

I’ve been wearing the Koss Porta Pros since I was 14. They were the first pair of “audiophile” headphones I could afford after starting to research how to get better sound out of my summer-job paycheck.

Everyone agreed, even way back in 1999, that the Porta Pro headphones were an anomaly, a confluence of retro design and excellent engineering.

Kick up dirt in ‘Colin McRae Rally’ for Android [Retro Review]

Colin McRae Rally is still one of the purest racing games for Android.

It’s hard to find pure racing games on Android — games that don’t bog you down with in-app currencies to monitor, put limits on the number of races or lock you into switching lanes. Is it too much to ask for a game that just delivers honest-to-goodness racing?

The company’s founder soon developed a special polarization technology that was rapidly adopted across a slew of products ranging from desk lamps to sunglasses.
