Ion Tape Express - Walkman-like device converts cassettes to MP3
A recent audit in RTG Towers found around 300 cassettes kicking about and doing very little. Which makes me the ideal audience for the Ion Tape Express.
It looks like an old Walkman, perhaps because it pretty much it. Just slap in a tape and press 'play', but first connect to a computer via the USB cable. In that way, you'll be able to convert those old tapes to modern-day-friendly MP3 using the included EZ Tape Converter software. Which means you can save your old tunes for playback on an iPod or if you prefer, you can burn to CD.
Failing that, it works as a good old fashioned cassette player. Good for use with PC or Mac, you can pre-order one now for £49.99.
