From Alexis Madrigal, published on The Atlantic:

When we think about the great consumer electronics technologies of our time, the cellular phone probably springs to mind. If we go farther back, perhaps we’d pick the color television or the digital camera. But none of those products were adopted as fast by the American people as the boom box.

Impressive. And it made me remember that even all the way down in Australia, we had a boom box too.
