I've still got 2 working Clies. They made those well.
If I remember right, just before the PDA market died, Sony pulled a funny with the Memory sticks. The originals you just used like any SD card, but the last ones might have had some proprietary nonsense or DRM. This was at least 10 years ago, and I can't remember what, but I do remember getting annoyed about it. The camcorder uses the stupid things, too.
I'll say one thing for Panasonic. They made a microwave oven that didn't beep every minute after it was done, and said so. I had a GE that had to beep until you opened the door. Most annoying thing I've ever had.
