Sony retires the Walkman

Posted on Monday, October 25 2010 @ 17:53:46 CEST by


Sony announced it will cease production of its celebrated portable cassette-playing Walkman lineup. The company sold over 220 million units since the device's introduction in 1979.
Lovers of music overlaid with hissing have reacted with sadness to news that Sony has ceased production of its celebrated portable cassette-playing audio device. It is survived by its neater, slicker, more junior MP3 descendent.

But the Walkman will be fondly remembered as the contraption which transformed listening to music from an activity conducted principally in one's own living room, perhaps with glass of brandy in hand, to a means of irritating other people on public transport.
