The New Walkman

The New Walkman - Here's the Tower
Episode 74

We’ve been hearing rumors for weeks and now it’s finally here. 

Sony announced their new Walkman models with a lot of new features and a sleek design for playing your tapes on the go. But it’s the absence of a headphone jack that may cause the biggest commotion.

Most people expected Sony to introduce wireless headphones, but industry experts say Bluetooth won’t be invented for another 16 years, and even then, it won’t work.

Guest voices by Mark Brickey of Adventures in Design and Carla Jacob.
