SONY BRINGING BACK THE WALKMAN. SORT OF.
Back in the 1980s, Sony changed the way we listened to music by introducing the Walkman -- a portable cassette player.
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Walkman, Sony is bringing it back, with some improvements.
The new gadget looks a lot like the Walkman from back in the day. But, it won’t actually play cassettes. Instead, it features USB charging, Bluetooth capability and touch controls on a nearly four-inch screen.
And, it will include a so-called “vinyl processor,” which will make the music sound like it’s being played on a turntable. You know, for the sake of nostalgia. (AskMen)
