One thing I miss the most about the nineties are mixtapes. Given the limited technology back then, it could take up to a few hours just to record a couple of tracks on a cassette tape. Things are definitely a whole lot easier nowadays with MP3 files and CDs and portable music players.
I was sorting through my old high school stuff the other day and I found a couple of old mixtapes that a friend had recorded for me before she moved away. I don’t own a radio or a Walkman anymore, so I just shelved the cassettes and forgot about them–until today, that is. If you have a couple of mixtapes yourself that you want to listen to again but can’t for reasons similar to mine, then you might want to take a look at the Cassette to iPod Converter.
It’s a handy device that converts audio tape cassettes into MP3s so you can listen to them on your iPhone or iPod, anytime, anywhere. All you have to do is stick your iDevice into one compartment, insert your cassette tape into the other, and then run the app that comes with it to start converting your tracks. Easy, breezy, and retro-tastic!
The iPhone Cassette Converter is priced at $79.95.
