    Top: Ad for the Sony 9″ Anyplace TV set — offering mobile Netflix binge watching avant-la-lettre.

    For wash ’n watching, the Sony plays off an AC wall plug or an optional rechargeable battery pack. And the nice thing about the set is, when you’ve had enough of soap operas and you’re ready to throw in the towel, you can always stick it in your laundry bag and take it home.

    Below: Ad for the Sony AM-FM pocket radio.

    Now on the same radio hear the three B’s, Bach, Beethoven and The Beach Boys. You can listen to a jam session by the Budapest String Quartet, dig the Beatles or catch the Rolling Stones. […] The nice thing about it is, after you get tired of listening to longhair music, you can always turn to another wavelength and cut it short.
