Dan Frommer with another cracker jack post on his site SplatF:
Growing up as a gadget nerd in the 1990s, there was no brand as exciting as Sony. Yes, Apple made great computers, and that’s what we used. But almost everything else, I wanted from Sony.
I wasn’t even an Apple nerd in the 90s, so for me it was all Sony, all the way. The mighty have indeed fallen.
