    The first one I saw was called a "Duo" or something like that, it came
    with 2 pairs of headphones so that you and your girlfriend could walk
    down the road cabled together and listening to the same tracks.
    I still have an original Sony Diskman that I bought in Tokyo in 1985, it
    seemed so small then, although, if you wanted to use it as a portable,
    you had to put it in a cradle with a bunch of C-cell NiCads that weighed
    a ton (and they only lasted for 2 disks at the most).
    There are a few kicking around in my garage, my wife's elderly Subaru
    Liberty is equipped with one of those new fangled cassette players. I
    have no means of recording them anymore though, but I do have one of
    those cassette adaptors that you can plug an iPod into for it which is
    more convenient than the near new Forrester which has a CD player
    instead so you have to use an RF modulator to play the iPod on long
