"Sony may be remembered as the largest consumer electronics company failure in history. No other company had the Sony brand at that critical period in the late 1990s and early this decade when most of the products that dominate the market today were born." 1

- Douglas A. McIntyre, Editor 24/7 Wall Street, in July 2009.
