The Chronicles of Sony’s Walkman

When Guardians of the Galaxy first screened globally in 2014 and the subsequent sequel in 2017, fans were intrigued by the vintage metallic blue device that appeared together with Star-Lord in the movie. It even appeared in the promotional clip for the movie original soundtracks by Marvel Studio.

The device, Sony’s first personal Walkman®, the TPS-L2, receives overwhelming responses online and according to Geek Media, “many die-hard fans have had the itch to purchase a similar Walkman in order to emulate the beloved character”.

2019 marks the 40th anniversary of Sony’s first portable cassette player, the TPS-L2. Revolutionizing the way consumers listened to music on the go, many were skeptical as the idea of a portable music player without a recording function was unheard of. Developed by modifying the Pressman (Sony’s voice recorder TCM-100), the TPS-L2 proved to be a huge success, proposing a new lifestyle which became popular around the world.

Although several names were proposed, Walkman was eventually selected and made its way into the prestigious Oxford English Dictionary in 1986.

Sony’s next breakthrough was the introduction of the world’s first portable CD player, the D-50, in 1984. The CD player, equivalent to the size of four CD cases stacked one top of another, was instrumental in accelerating the popularity of the CD and was priced affordably. Further perfecting the craft, Sony introduced the world’s first MiniDisc Walkman, MZ-1, which featured recording, playback, a numeric keyboard and anti-skip technology in 1992.

 

(L-R) The D-50 CD player, MZ-1 MiniDisc Walkman

2013 saw the introduction of High-Resolution Audio, with Sony among one of the first companies to launch the technology with a line-up that encompasses the ZX1 Walkman. It allows high-resolution audio source playback that was developed by integrating knowledge and technology accumulated over the years.

The ZX1 Walkman

In 2016, Sony announced the NW-WM1Z Walkman as part of the Signature series. Building upon a wealth of experience in digital amp technology, our engineers developed the NW-WM1Z with detailed acoustics and natural sound qualities, resulting in a unique and truly pleasurable listening experience.

The NW-WM1Z Walkman

Over the years, Sony’s Walkman has dramatically changed the way the world listens to music. The Walkman made music listening a personal experience, by providing people with the freedom to enjoy music regardless of place and time. Embracing the spirit of innovation and always looking towards the future, Sony has been the first in the industry to achieve many important milestones in audio engineering and continues in its pursuit to deliver sound experience ‘from one you listen to, to one you can feel’.

Transfer Funds in Minutes with GCash Fund Transfer

Just until recently, it was still true to say that doing fund transfers were simple in idea but relatively time-consuming to do and fulfill. Customers used to – and in most cases still are – falling in line in banks to do bank to bank or even interbank fund transfers, spending precious hours to do so. Now, this could all be history thanks to a new GCash feature: free fund transfers.

The nation’s leading mobile money service GCash have fully rolled out its fund transfers service, allowing customers to transfer funds from their GCash App to any of the over 30 banks supported nationwide. Thanks to this feature, fund transfer times have been virtually reduced to zero and paper wastes eliminated, as it will only take less than 3 minutes to complete a transfer transaction digitally.

Philippine fund transfer services are notorious for having exorbitant fees and antiquated paper processes, the former of which depends on a certain percentage of the money you’re transferring or a fixed fee, with a turnaround time depending on the volume of people per bank or money transfer service branch.

With GCash, all a customer needs are smartphone, funds in their GCash account, and the bank details of the account they’re transferring funds to. Once these are inputted, they can just sit tight and relax as the confirmation message arrives on their device. This service also allows for transfers anywhere in the Philippines where there is data connectivity present. The app also is open to use for all networks, be it Globe, Smart, Sun, Talk n’ Text, or TM.

Fund transfers are an integral part of the Philippine financial ecosystem. It’s widely used for sending money for personal purposes such as for family needs, bills payments, or even paying online sellers for products ordered on social media platforms. The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas expects the nation to have at least 20% of its financial transactions to be made electronically by the year 2020. This includes banks and Electronic Money Issuers (EMIs) which GCash is classified under.

“Fund transfers used to be a long, bogging process where customers will just wait for their turn on the cashier just to have money delivered onto another account. With GCash’s new feature, over 15 million customers can now transfers funds to more than 30 banks for free, and without taking hours,” said Anthony Thomas, President and CEO of Mynt. “This convenience, combined with all the services available in the GCash App, makes for a perfect all-in-one financial tool for all Filipinos. It also ties back to GCash’s mission of financial inclusion in the Philippines,” he added. Mynt is the operating company of GCash.

GCash, for its fund transfer service, utilizes the InstaPay platform initiated by the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas. It is an “Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT) service that allows customers to transfer funds almost instantly between accounts of participating BSP-supervised banks and non-bank e-money issuers in the Philippines.”

Getting a GCash account is easy. Just download the GCash App for free from the App Store or from Google Play and sign up for an account. Alternatively, you can look for @gcashofficial on Messenger and sign up.

To fund their GCash account, a user can visit over 16,000 GCash partner outlets nationwide, like 7-Eleven, SM Business Centers, Robinsons Business Centers, Puregold branches, and Villarica Pawnshop branches, and tell the cashier to cash-in to their GCash account. Cashing-in to a GCash account is free.
