The decline of the standalone satnav is an object lesson in realising that the next big thing may not be big for very long, writes Ross Davies. The Office for National Statistics (ONS) has taken the standalone satnav out of its basket of goods used to gauge UK inflation. In October 2009, when Google announced that its Android 2. 0 operating system would support Google Maps Navigation, the shares in manufacturers like Garmin and TomTom plunged. At the same time, more and more cars have them built in. In this case, the idea of navigating using satellite information in the car hasn't become unpopular, but a particular object for doing it has. It's only been eight years since the standalone satnav was first included in the ONS's consumer prices index (CPI) basket.

In the era of vinyl records and cassette tape, Sony’s fashionably styled and very portable battery-powered player was the first device that really let you take your music with you. Partly due to the runaway success of the original Walkman and its many imitators, the music industry also released cassette versions of vinyl albums, and while not having the audio quality of vinyl, made it easy to take music with you in your... From the original cassette model in 1979 , the Walkman brand later encompassed Digital Audio Tape (DAT) players, CD players, Minidisc (proprietary Sony digital format), and flash memory players that competed with the iPod. None of the players following the original cassette versions were as successful in the market, nor did any of the later ones capture the public imagination and achieve the fashion accessory status of the original, which dominated the portable... Sony, along with other major audio manufacturers, music labels, and the CEA , is pushing high-resolution audio capability in a variety of home and portable equipment designed to bring audio quality back.
