iPod v. Walkman
BBC have a great article where they took away a 13yr old boy’s iPod, and gave him a classic Sony Walkman instead.
Born in 1996 (the year i graduated… i feel so old…) this was pretty much the first time young Scott Campbell had needed to deal with old analogue technology, particularly the staple of my youth, the humble home audio tape, producing my favourite remark from the article:
“It took me three days to figure out that there was another side to the tape.”
