Happy 30th Birthday, Walkman

walkmanEventhough his offspring, the iPod, makes him look like an old geezer, he’s just 30. Can you believe it? I’m not really sure why, but this makes me feel older than reminiscing about TV with dials this afternoon. Here’s an interesting BBC story where a kid swapped his iPod for a Walkman for a week. My favorite part: It took him three days before he realized there was music on both sides of the tape.

My Walkman looked more like this version:

Walkman-2

And believe me, when you’re being carted all over town in a big brown van with three siblings and a mother who loves Barbara Streisand, this baby is your best friend. Remember your Walkman?
