Sony Annoumces the End of the Cassette Walkman




A big thanks to my buddy Paul Feuerstein for this one.

I still remember being in college and a couple of gals I knew worked at a local department store in the electronics Dept. They invited severals of us over to see this brand new gizmo from Sony. It was called the Walkman and had the most amazing sound we had ever heard.

Of course then only constant is change, and now Sony has announced the end of the cassette Walkman line. The name will continue, but once the current inventory of cassette devices is sold, that's all there will be.

It's sad, but really, how many cassettes do you own? Me neither.
