RIP Sony Walkman cassette player
Another iconic technological device has been banished to the dustbin of history: Sony will no longer produce its Walkman cassette player due to dismal sales. The final batch of the portable tape players was shipped from Japan in April, according to PC Magazine.

Deuteronomy 18:10-12 (KJV)
10 There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. 12 For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord. (KJV)

How inevitable yet sad! I remember in the 80's, how cool it was to have a Walkman! I even had a yellow 'sports' version and spent many hours running or walking the beach with one; thought I was hot u-know-what, rockin my jams!!George Eliot: "We constantly ask for God's mercy while showing none ourselves..."

I had the clunky yellow sports one as well when I was a kid! I think my parents bought it knowing that I tended to destroy things.

This yellow one folks?
They have a Facebook I Love My Yellow Walkman if you are all that sad.
Plus look on the bright side. Our nieces and nephews and grands will be hunting E-Bay for one and ready to pay lots of cash just like they're doing with vinyl.
