    Many Sony formats don't fail

    They're only remembered for the ones that do though.

    These Sony things didn't fail...

    Compact Disc (sony/philips)

    DVD (jointly with many other vendors)

    MF2 (otherwise known as the 3.5" floppy disk)

    Minidisc (it wasn't a huge consumer success but it was a big broadcast audio success)

    The Aperture Grille CRT (Trinitron, to you and me)

    DVD+R, +RW

    Blu-Ray (well it beat HD-DVD but some might say it just hasn't failed *yet*)

    Betacam (not betamax)

    Walkman

    Transistor Radio

    etc.
