This is fun: a vintage terminal emulator for Mac OS X. Run it in full screen mode for the best effect. Clever licensing model, too: it’s free to use but the image quality slowly degrades over the course of a session until you pay for a license. $20.

I’m having fun imagining going back in time and showing this to my, say, 1991 self, and trying to explain why we in 2011, with our magnificent LCD displays, would find comfort in an app that takes great effort to mimic decrepit CRT text terminals.
