"The Boom Box Stages a Comeback"

I really want this to be true (because it's ridiculous) despite the fact that it's contrary to most music-listening trends within the past... well, really long time. (Dawn of the Walkman?)

Wired posted a rundown of the latest boom boxes that will "have you jamming like it's 1989," and really, who doesn't want that? It's sort of a skeletal tech article-- no explanation for said comeback, but for some reason the idea is intriguing. Perhaps the boom box is at the point where archaic is morphing into novel and mostly ironic. It's a hipster dream. Clunky-chic, shall we say?
