Wait, Walkman’s JUST Stopped Being Produced

23 10 2010

Sony has announced that it has stopped production of their cassette Walkmans.

This is the end of an era, for 30 years Sony has produced this fine, fine piece of equipment.  If it wasn’t for walkmans then how would I have discovered such grade school wonders as Ace of Base, The Cranberries, Hootie and the Blowfish & Mr. Big? In grade school having one of these things was the closest shot of getting laid that a young buck had.  I felt bad for the kids that had the “bobo” walkmen from CVS that cost $9, they had no shot.

This is a story that is news breaking only because we learn that the product is still produced.  Next you’re going to tell me that VHS players are gonna stop being produced.  I thought the walkman went out with computers that cant access the internet.
