Every morning for the past eight months, Nicole Mazarakis wakes up, rolls out of bed and puts on music. Instead of turning on an iPod or playing a CD, Mazarakis pops a cassette into the old tape deck in her bedroom. She likes classical tapes from composers like Mozart and Haydn, but lately she's been listening to a new cassette by the enigmatic Baltimore singer/songwriter Daniel Higgs. "It's a really nice thing to wake up to in the morning," she said. "If you only have 30 minutes to get out of the house, it's not really that convenient to put a record on — you've got to flip it. Cassettes are great for me. " This might be the age of iPods and now iPhones, but the lowly cassette tape — long abandoned by the average listener — is making a small yet fervent comeback, fueled by a devoted base of indie musicians and fans.

Now and then I run across a gadget that meets my criteria for cool technology. That means it has to do something useful, and do it better than other gadgets of its ilk. And it has to work right out of the box. Roadmaster USA's odd-looking VRFM8 makes the cut. It's an elegant package of old FM broadcasting technology and new electronics that solves a real problem for many digital music lovers - how to play that great collection of tunes in the car. ...

We live in a digital age and nowhere is that more apparent than in the world of recorded music. Analog media such as vinyl records and cassette tapes are all but extinct. Walk into any record store today and all you see are CDs and DVDs. MP3 music files stream over the Internet, to be downloaded into tiny MP3 players we carry in our pockets, stored on hard disk drives in our computers and burned onto optical media to be played on our stereo equipment. Yet you are out there, and you all know who you are. You're the ones who still have a huge music collection of hundreds, even thousands of cassette tapes stored in closets, in storage boxes or stacked neatly on tiny little shelves in some kind of display case.

Did you ever want to know that there are 17 uses, aside from the obvious, for dryer sheets? Do you yearn for the Irish prayer of the day? Do you need to know the definition of a True Friend, or want to read the latest American, chest-pounding poem written by "a veteran"? Me neither. But I am being bombarded with the above-described e-mails, and many others, by a most unlikely source: my mom. She's spamming me. And if that's not bad enough, there's an additional rub. It will continue, clogging my computer system and working my last nerve, because I just don't have the heart to tell her to stop.

Polaroid's new One takes up less space while using old films Instant photographs from Polaroid cameras have been a part of my family since I was born. So when a new one comes along, it's almost nostalgic for me to put down my digital cameras and pick up something with the Polaroid name. The latest addition to the family is the Polaroid One ($50), a lighter (at 20 ounces) and more compact version of the cameras that have been around for years. The Polaroid One, however, uses the same 600 film (600 Write-On and Notepad film and 779 high-speed film can be used in the camera)

Rebecca Wehrkamp owns more than 400 VHS videotapes. They're in special drawers her husband built for the family's home entertainment center, they're on bookshelves and they're piled in boxes. And Wehrkamp, like many other VHS lovers, is afraid her precious videotapes are about to become obsolete. Circuit City officials announced this spring that the electronics store chain would no longer offer new movies on videotape; current and future releases will be available on DVD only. Wehrkamp, who lives in Troy, Ohio, sees the writing on the wall: VHS videotape is about to go the way of Betamax tape, vinyl records and eight-track tapes.

For watching movies, the playback device of choice is the DVD player. Every day, more of us are using Personal Video Recorders (PVR) like TiVo and Replay for recording and for playback. But there are still a lot more VCRs out there than all other recording media combined. If you have a VHS tape library, then you still need your VCR. So how do you keep your library in shape? First, how you store your VHS cassettes is important. Keep them in a clean, dry, stable environment and not exposed to excessive heat or cold, and keep tapes out of harsh sunlight.

Dual-Deck VCR a good tape editor, `commercial killer' I hate commercials as much as the next guy. I've tried to use the remote to speed through them when I've videotaped something from television or paused the recording during commercials if I happen to be in front of the set while it's taping. Both solutions leave me unsatisfied. It's all a great reason to remove commercial television entirely from your life - unless you get Go-Video's latest Dual-Deck VCR from Sensory Science. I've come to dub the DDV2110 the "commercial killer."
