Daily Trivia: 11/15/11

Question: What retail giant was the only suitable place to buy Raymond Babbitt’s boxer shorts, in Rain Man?


Last Question: What Sony product name made the Oxford English Dictionary in 1986?

Answer: Walkman

The Sony Walkman was one of the greatest technologies of the ’80s. If it was not for the Walkman, the iPod may never had been invented.
You could listen to your music while running or working out. Depending on your job, you could listen to the Walkman while you worked. You could also listen to it at home without annoying the rest of the family.
But, you could look like a fool by singing, really loud, to what you were listening to, and nobody else could hear the music.
