I found this paragraph to be hilarious in its irony:

The pair's first conversion, at their Web site (facadecomputer.com), is of
a computer built into the mahogany casing of a 1937 Emerson 215 tube radio
that they rescued from Mr. Fader's attic. Other possibilities for casings
include old briefcases, typewriters and televisions. "The idiom 'one man's
trash is another man's treasure' really applies here," Mr. Fader said.
"There's a lot of stuff that people really don't realize the value of."

Hundreds of radio collectors just had an aneurysm.
