40th Anniversary of the sony Walkman by Sony Electronics Asia Pacific

I still remember going to buy my first Walkman, a black and grey model that had colour coded earpieces so you knew which ear to put them in.

I also loved having MiniDisc recorder, it really felt like the future but didn't get any real traction despite. Not that I helped but not buying pre-recorded albums and only re-writable MiniDiscs. Timing wasn't great either as MP3s became popular. They did get featured in The Matrix though.
