The Transistor was in FACT used in a transistor radio First by REGENCY, Sony had their's out a bit later....marketing ..marketing...marketing.....Bell LAbs should get retro active license fees for anything with a semiconductor....Bertain,Schokley, and the other guy get credit at Bell labs for the transistor..they formed Schokley Semi Conductor, which later formed into FairChild Semiconductor, which eventually led to Texas Instruments....the head guy at Intel, originally worked at FairChild with Bertain and Schokley,anything related to SemiConductor can be traced to it's start by BELL LABS....Sony's only work on the CD, which is an entire concept from PHILIPS, was the error correction ckts only....Philips' laseroptical recording was the first on the LaserDisc...the size, the entire format of CD is Dutch....a lot of work done in Briar Cliff labs in NY, by Philips. It's notasony. Even the plastic used for the first plastic radio, was in fact developed by some other company, not Sony.
You just proved my point about Sony hype and teh uninformed consumer, public...Bells Labs invented the transistor..ever hear of Bertain.? Walkman is based on the PHILIPS cassette, 1962...single gun crt(trinitron) PHILIPS , they marketed it poorly, marketing is Sony's expertise, Morita learned it a MIT, he went to American college! PlayStation?....all the parts in it are somebody else's work. Video Games were not invented by Sony...CCD used in the Video camera...Philips and Bell Labs, Bell got the Patent ahead of Philips...work done in the 60's...But you prove my point..the consumer is totaly uninformed and mindless in any products they buy....Advertising really does corrupt the minds of dopes. The concept of SteadyCam is out of professional camera for movies from the pro's..Hollywood had it years before Sony once again took another idea from other companys. Movies?...they BOUGHT into Columbia, which existed for decades without Sony....remember Japanese movies....Godzilla?....Mothra?...Quality product there!! They ain't exactly Cecil B D'Mill..or Buster Keaton!....you sound like a totaly uninformed individual....ignorance is BLISS!
