You can't even handle these JoJo Rubik's Cubes

Sony upgrades Shinji's ratchet old SDAT tape player with HD audio

Stupid Shinji and his stupid tape player. All he ever does is replay that one track. You'd think he'd get tired of it by now, or at the very least he could upgrade to a CD player or an iPod. But no, he's still stuck with a So...
