Sony wakes up, realizes it’s 2010

Sony’s last big idea was the PlayStation I suppose, and before that, go back to the Walkman and Discman.  Have you heard of them? Maybe not, since iTunes has crushed them like a grape.  I loved Sony stuff growing up- it was synonymous with cool.  But they haven’t really kept up, have they? Well, well.  Now CNET reports that Sony is going to roll out a smartphone and tablet this year, and oh by the way, the phone will be able to play PlayStation games.  Ka-ching.  More from Erica Ogg, here. (And look for the part where she says Sony is launching an online service to rival iTunes. I can’t even pronounce it without help.)
