Boy meets Walkman

Filed under: News — brizz20 @ 12:42

With this week marking the 30 year anniversary of the Sony Walkman, BBC The Magazine invited a 13 year old boy to swap his iPod for the Walkman for a week and then document his experience. It was great read as it harkoned me back to my youth when I would clean the house with my walkman on my hip listening to the cars that go boom.

My favorite snippetts from the story are how it took him 3 days to figure out there was two sides to the tape and his method of introducing a ‘shuffle’ feature. Its both an interesting and amusing (especially for anyone who actually had a walkman) read, so be sure to check it out.
