Another Sony Downgrade

Today we gave you the sad news that Sony may not be producing robotic dogs anymore, but it looks like the consumer electronics giant has made another cost-cutting move, deciding to close its Walkman plant in Japan and no longer make the devices in-country. What that means for the Walkman as a brand, I'm not sure, but by March 2007, the Saitama, Japan plant will be closed down for good.
