Bluetooth Cassette Adapter

After our lengthy road trip to a land of many beers an no radio signals my friend Cornelius told me I either have to find tapes of something other than Appetite for Destruction and Hall & Oates: Greatest Hits or get one of these Bluetooth cassette adapters.

Yes, I still have a cassette deck in my car.

If you do too, or if you have a ghetto blaster or a Walkman that would bring you great nostalgic joy to continue using, the adapter has built-in Bluetooth tech so it can pair wirelessly with any Bluetooth-enabled smartphone, tablet, laptop, or media player. Think of it: your whole music collection pumping in the finest sound quality through the hard plastic and miniature spools of a cassette tape. This one, however, is ribbon-free so you won't get to relive the pleasure of finger-cranking after the tape hooks on something and unravels into a tangled mess that spews out of your player when you hit the Eject button.

Muchas danke to Manny for the Dude Product Tip.
