40th Anniversary Walkman

I came across this article in Forbes.

Seems pretty cool. I guess if you're still using a flip phone, this would be a nice thing to use.

I found an actual walkman at salvation army last year but sadly the cassette player didnt work....... (One of the spools wasnt there -- AH MAN!!)

I would love getting a GOOD walkman from the 80s again!!!!!! -- They have excellent AM reception!





When you stop watching what they want you to watch you stop thinking what they want you to think.. Then you see a world that is nothing like they tell you it is.

I still have a couple, used them every day at work back in the day. Then they put in new shop lights and none of us ever got radio reception again....till the blue tooth stuff came out.

All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.
