The Music Goes Round and Round
Forgot to mention with all the bicycle flap that we saw the coolest gadget in Costco (no, did not buy; still trying to figure out how to do this with a line out cord and Windows). It's a USB-connection turntable which plugs directly into your computer. With the accompanying software, it will transfer whatever record is on the turntable to the computer so you can burn it to CD or rip it to .mp3. It also has a jack for you to plug in a cassette player so you can do the same thing.

As you can tell looking at the photo, it only has 33 and 45 speeds, but according to the specs it will also recognize/play/convert 78s. Neat, eh?
