The kids of today will NEVER know how great the 80's were.  Let's flash back for a second.....mountains of hairspray, converse sneakers, Members Only Jackets and people walking around with a WALKMAN blasting the latest Def Leppard cassette, hooked to there hip.  The 80's were something else! (SO I HEARD!!)

Sony changed the way we listened to music and communicated, with the release of the WALKMAN!! If you have no idea what I'm talking about, it was a portable-cassette player that allowed you take your favorite cassette tapes where-ever you went.  (The modern day version = RADIO.COM APP)

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Walkman, Sony is bringing it back, with some improvements.

It will look a lot like the Walkman from back in the day. But..........SADLY.....it won’t actually play cassettes. Instead, it features USB charging, Bluetooth capability and touch controls on a nearly four-inch screen

MY OPINION....HOW CAN YOU EVEN CALL THIS A WALKMAN?!?! TOUCH SCREEN? BLUETOOTH? Come on......a WALKMAN plays cassettes!!!

If you agree with my opinion, this might make you feel better - it will include a “vinyl processor,” which will make the music sound like it’s being played on a turntable. YOU KNOW, FOR SAKE OF NOSTALGIA!!!
