Trend: Retro Electronics

People have been doing stuff with cassettes again! (I know, right?!) It makes sense, though. Cassettes are totally cuter than CDs, so it's sort of not surprising that people would start pining away for them at some point. Just like vinyl is cuter than the both of them combined. (Also, scoff at the ridiculousness of that sentence all you want, but you know it's true.) As Liz Lemon's boyfriend Dennis once said on 30 Rock, "Technology is cyclical." Too true, my friend. Here are some items that'll keep you groovin' like it's 1989. —Katie
