The End Of An Era

at

Well that’s the end of that. After 31 years, Sony has finally decommissioned the Cassette Walkman. The final batch was shipped in Japan last April and when the last one sells, it’s lights out for the legend.

And that’s not all. They’ve also ankled the floppy disk.

What are we going to listen to 1980s mixtapes and save tiny quantities of data on now?
