iPod vs. Walkman: Could You Go Back?


The BBC had a 13-year old swap his iPod for a Sony Walkman.  It's a pretty fun read as the kid compares the two portable music devices.

I loved my Walkman.  I took it everywhere and spent a great deal of time making perfect mix tapes.  Here I am gushing about my good ol' Walkman days back in 2004 and here I am doing it again in 2005.

Once you adapt to the iPod, there really is no going back.  The shuffle, the sound quality, the storage capacity, the size... it's simply not a fair comparison.  But back in the day, when we didn't know any better, Walkmans rocked.
