A thoroughly essential total and utter waste of money for music lovers of a certain age
by on December 2, 2011
If all the modern technology they have these days feels a little soulless or lacking in charm to you, here’s the perfect antidote: make your device look like it’s playing old-fashioned audio cassettes.
There are lovingly crafted, trademark-avoiding imitations of popular brands from the olden days, animated perfectly (just watch those reels spin and the tape gradually spool from one side to the other) and without all the rubbish things about tapes, such as having to rewind the damned things or them getting chewed up by your car stereo.
It is, of course, completely and utterly pointless, and something you’ll buy and muck around with for a bit before the novelty wears off, then only get out to show off to people.
The thing is, though, in that respect it’s already earned one genuine squeal of delight from a friend, and on those grounds it’s impossible to not love it.
