BBC gives 13-year-old an original Walkman to review


BoingBoing recently linked to a BBC Magazine article where they gave a 13-year-old an original Sony Walkman to review. My favourite quote:

“It took me three days to figure out that there was another side to the tape. That was not the only naive mistake that I made; I mistook the metal/normal switch on the Walkman for a genre-specific equaliser, but later I discovered that it was in fact used to switch between two different types of cassette.”
