Sony Walkman, R.I.P.
The Register reports: [edited]
Sony is ditching the groundbreaking Walkman cassette player in Japan, 30 years after first launching its assault on the hearing of teens and the patience of the people sat next to them.
"There is still demand in certain regions, including emerging markets, but in Japan there has been a shift to other forms of recording media," a Sony spokesman said.
