Sony Walkman turns 30

In a day of MP3 players that hold thousands of songs, some of which are so small you can swallow, the Walkman seems blocky and ancient. Yet, the Sony Walkman (and all of its various imitators) had such an impact on our music listening habits that the brand name still survives to this day, 30 years after it first appeared.

For an amusing, and still insightful, piece on how far technology has taken us, you read Scott Campbell’s (13 years old) review of a Sony Walkman.

Happy birthday Walkman!
