The Sony Walkman was considered a rich kids toys and due to the few people that had access to such luxury they were often looked on as inferior and out of place compared to the transistor radios and boom boxes that were popular among group listening. It wasnt out of the ordinary to be walking down the street and seeing a couple people grooving to a band you loved for you to stop and listen and strike up a conversation around the music you were listening to. Many friendships were sparked up in just this way.

This is a legacy headset that has a 1/8th microphone jack that simply plugs into the audio input on my laptop. I was frantic as I had this video to make and no sound input. I tried for an hour to fix the microphone by rewiring with no luck. Then after about 2 hours it hit me that I could use my blue-tooth headset as a audio input on my laptop thanks to its integrated blue-tooth capability. Now some of you might be going "well duH!" but for me since I havent used my blue-tooth devices for my laptop before and only for my cellphone this was something new. But its a good example of how ingrained the "wired" concept is in our heads. I wasnt thinking at the time how I could maybe go out and pick up the latest and greatest wireless microphone. Instead I was thinking about where I could go to get an old legacy microphone that was exactly like the one I had!
