Interesting blogs about weird technology?

I'm looking for blogs that cover old and/or niche technology, in the vein of Something Awful's "Obsolete technology" thread or JWZ' "retrocomputing" tag. Suggestions?

If you're interested in technical details, The Old New Thing is full of strange Windows history. And Macintosh Folklore is a site for Mac history, with more of a focus on personal relationships.

There's also Vintage Computing, but it's much less in depth. I tried googling "retrocomputing", and there's even a tag on Google+!

You would probably enjoy Low Tech Magazine's obsolete technology category. This was the post that made me fall in love with them.
