Cassette Mate converts tapes into MP3s

Youíve got to love that retro style, but the cassette tapes that are stacked up to oblivion in the spare room need to go. You donít want to lose all those precious tunes, but itís a little difficult to find a simple way to transfer the cassette to a more manageable form. Thatís where Thankoís Cassette Mate is going to come in very handy.

This little device looks as though itís a Walkman, but actually take the tapes that go into it and can convert them into MP3, WAV, or WMA files. If you really want to, you can use this as a Walkman, but thatís only for the sake of nostalgia. Thereís also some bulky Windows software included that will automatically split tracks for you if youíd like. This whole deal costs about $34, but in all honesty, unless you’re dead-set on preserving those old mix tapes, you really should invest in buying digital copies of the tracks. It might cost a bit more, but the audio quality is going to be much better.
