Ten years ago some Microsoft execs worried about the Internet,
now its biggest threat has a name, Google. Heh this is pretty cool, check out
this audio player from 1954,
looks a lot like the iPod Mini!
An astute observation by John Ousby has left plenty of people scratching
their heads. Ousby has spotted the uncanny resemblance between the now defunct
iPod Mini, and a transistor radio that made its debut over 50 years ago. The
Regency TR-1 transistor radio hit the market in 1954, and was the first commercially
sold transistor product aimed at the consumer market, according to Steve Reyer.
Not only was it small and convenient, but it was also stylish, featuring colorful
case options, and a bold circular dial. It came in blue, green, lavender, black,
white, and a light red. Regency marketed it with the slogan, "See it! Hear
it! Get it!"
Gates is still the wealthiest person in the US (and the world). Well I'm
definitely rooting for Apple
on this one as it prepares to face off against record labels over pricing.
