According to this, the walkman was made possible because the use of samarium allowed for small, powerful magnets for the first time. Is this worth putting in the article? Totnesmartin (talk) 17:52, 23 November 2010 (UTC)
If there is going to be sections for the wide array of products that fall under the walkman line(including the Discman) shouldn't theree at least some mention of the Watchman portable TVs that sony made in the 80s and 90s? If only a link in the see other. While the Watchman is not directly related, the Video Walkman is not directly related either as it plays tapes and TV, not music.

The term "Walkman" is I feel most commonly associated with the cassette players. As such, I think the picture at the top of the page should be of one of a classic cassette Walkman, not the modern mp3 players. Views? M0ffx (talk) 01:33, 19 May 2011 (UTC)
Hello M0ffx, I am not sure about that.. Changing the main picture to display an older product would not reflect its newness and might confuse people regarding its current existence, don't you think? I would even say it would be better to change the current picture to show a newer Walkman Model... Let me know if you agree. Cheers, Zalunardo8 (talk) 13:33, 22 May 2013 (UTC)
It is possible to have a pair of photos up at the top, with an early Walkman shown next to a recent model. Binksternet (talk) 14:14, 22 May 2013 (UTC)
