    Sony Intoduces The WalkMan
    The world took a big step towards the iPod generation when Sony introduced the Walkman in 1979. The device was not particularly advanced - portable tape recorders had existed for decades - but it was an advance in marketing. The Walkman was not promoted to professional journalists, like most portable tape recorders were at the time; it was promoted to ordinary consumers.
    It was a music player first and foremost; it had no record function.
    The concept was a winner.
