Poor Sony. The inventor of the Walkman missed out on the iPod revolution and is now getting pummeled by no-name brands in the consumer-electronics category. Now, as an extra slap in the face, this video from the Onion News Network has gotten close to 1 million views on YouTube alone in about two weeks. (It's also posted in the video section of The Onion's Web site.) Without giving too much away, let's just say it plays on the idea that electronics gizmos often don't work the way they should, and that this causes some, shall we say, pent-up anger among consumers. You could substitute almost any brand here, but Sony gets singled out, undoing millions in advertising, no doubt.
