Go retro with a cassette to iPhone converter
Well, if you are among the elderly that have an iPhone, and you have a collection of old tapes that you were reluctant to get rid of for some reason, and the tapes are still playable, you can now convert them directly to your iPhone or iPod.
The Tape Dock by Ion is one way to convert your audio cassette content directly to digital tracks on your iPhone. The Tape Dock is similar to Ion’s Tape 2 Go product, but with the Tape Dock, you connect your iPhone or iPod directly to the unit. The Tape Dock works with the company’s EZ Vinyl/Tape Converter software and will work with either Windows or OS X.
However, if you are nostalgic to hear that gentle, subtle tape-hiss during playback of your favorite big-hair rock band from the 1980s, this is your ticket.

25 years too late? So, you're saying they should have made this product for the iPhone in 1987?

Wow...i suddenly remembered i have dozens stored up in a box.
Invasion of the disc killed the cassette...i also remember when i switched to compact discs.
This is kind of late and expensive...i'd rather download it digitally.
But i'll keep my collection though...feels nice going through each retro piece.

You got to be kidding right? Cassettes had far better music quality than the ipod
