I must confess reading this article made me think I must be an important person… or at least I have a somewhat relevant website. None of them are true, but I bet the latter is closer.

Some time ago I managed to get a shiny SONY WM-701S, the famous silver version of the famous too WM-701C, that I reviewed here. This was an anniversary model, and only 2000 units were released for the entire world. I was excited to see how beautiful this silver walkman was, and I was delighted about […]
