The complete and utter history of Sony

Sony has given the tech world some cracking toys in their 53 year history. Gizmodo have produced a timeline of all these wundergadgets, from the Walkman and CD player, through to the Blu-ray and the Vaio netbook. Sadly, everything launched since tate funny robot dog 10 years ago looks a little tame and uninspired compared the the big whirly cassette decks of old. Unless you like playing kiddie games on your television, in which case we'll give you the PS3.

    They forget 1988 - Work begins on cd addon for the Snes, 1991 - Sony stabs Nintendo in the back and develops the addon into a home console.

    Sony has always been pioneer of sorts in innovation . The were the ones who made listening music on go possible with their portable walkman.. Such a great innovation..

    What is Blue-ray? Ive heard of Blu-ray! Also, the MD wasnt exactly a failed medium, it never stuck, but lots of US customers used it, damn i even had a MD stereo, and still have and its a JVC stereo! Had a portable and a in car as well. Disc quality music without being able to scratch the disc...perfect. Innovative just didnt take off, like a lot of any creations by any company who pushed the boundaries
