Sony Walkman. In 1979, Sony didn’t just invent a product; they crafted a revolution.

The Walkman wasn’t merely a device, but a symbol of a generation, changing the very essence of how we experienced music.

But true innovation isn’t just about crafting the first verse of a song; it’s about understanding the entire composition. The melody of the world began to change, with digitalization and the burgeoning rise of software taking center stage. The world whispered in the language of ones and zeros, and songs started flowing like streams across the vast digital ocean.

Sony, with its prowess, had every tool to not just play along but conduct this orchestra. Yet, when the potential of the iPod beckoned, Sony held back, seemingly anchored by their past successes. The possibility of jeopardizing their standing market made them hesitant to embrace the future’s rhythm.

In the world of innovation, it’s not enough to just start the symphony; one must continuously redefine it. Sony, once a maestro, missed a beat.
