Death Of The Cassette Walkman On iPod’s Birthday

Not like the iPod was the real killer of the Sony Walkman (portable CD players were once everywhere) but they sure didn’t help.  Alas, on the 9th anniversary of the release of the iPod, Sony officially announced it would no longer make the cassette walkman.

I’ve had several including the very first Sanyo one I’d gotten as a kid.  Big orange headphones, giant “portable” cassette player with a built in AM FM radio.  It was revolutionary.  AM radio, are you next?
