The March of Technology

Cleaning up the garage last weekend, I stumbled upon this relic – formerly a technology marvel, dated 1989. It still works, and so do the batteries (Energizer!) that have been in it for probably 10 years ( is that even possible?).

I paid big bucks for the Sony back then, and it served me well for almost a decade (granted, I had to help out with some duct tape). These days, I don’t own anything like it, no walkman, no ipod. I prefer music that fills the room, rather than the air between the headphone and my ear. But seeing this unit made me all sentimental. Talk about quality. It’s an all metal case. It weights heavy in your hand. It feels like it was built to last. Tell me what does these days?
