The New King

Is Apple the new Sony? I remember when I was a kid Sony made all the coolest stuff; TVs, Stereos, the Walkman, the DiscMan and tiny freaking portable TVs. They were the home entertainment hardware kings and we all flocked to by their products. The Walkman made riding in the car with my parents something that could be enjoyed instead of feared. These days Sony is but a former shadow of itself, sure they still make great products but their market dominance is a distant memory.

At the height of Sony's consumer electronics dominance Apple was the king of the personal computer. If you had told someone in 1986 that Apple would end up ruling the portable audio market they would have locked you up. Get ready for Apple's big push into the living room....
