A nice article paying tribute to the Dutch Philips engineer, that invented the audio cassette tape.  I remember those days when the cassette tape cartridges were taking over from records, due to the portability a battery powered audio cassette pocket players, aka, the Sony walkman. Just today, I see numerous brand new pocket cassette players in the Thrift store for about $3.
