Relationship between the 2 Objects?

Do you know the relationship between these two objects? If your answer is yes, then you must be a senior citizen or near the silver years of your life?

My very first question is “Do you what the top object is?” Maybe, a lot of you millenials have never seen or used the top object. It is called a cassette tape. The casette tape is a medium which stores all our favorite songs and recordings. Before Spotify, Itunes, IPod, and smartphones, this is how we used to listen to our favorite songs. We were able to store at most 90 to 120 minutes of songs in these cassette tapes. We used a casette tape player which was the size of a Coleman cooler to play our song.

Then, Sony introduced the Walkman which was a very handy cassette player that was the size of our palm. The Sony Walkman was a revolutionary product in the 1980s. Many commuters, students, and office workers were using the Sony Walkman so that they could enjoyed their own personal collections of songs. At the same time, they did not disturb their other friends and office mates.

The Sony Walkman was very popular then. It only became obsolete when it was replaced by CDs or compact discs. CDs gave us the ability to have more than 50 songs. Sony then introduced the Discman to replace the Walkman. When Apple’s IPod and IPhone were introduced, the Discman became obsolete.

If you have not figured out the relationship between the cassette tape and the pencil, the pencil is inserted in one of the two holes of the cassette tape. You then roll the cassette tape to manually rewind the casette tape. We used this technique to prevent the magnetic head of our cassette players from being damaged or worn out.

This is another Throwback Thursday from yours truly. Hope you enjoy it.
