Portable music players have come a long way in my lifetime. In the beginning, transistor radios were the latest and greatest. Then the Walkman portable cassette player wowed the world and introduced the concept of personal music. You could listen to your cassette player all by yourself, even in public. If the player had any speaker at all, it was tiny and tinny. Then there were portable CD players. If you wanted to share your music with the world around you, you had to get a boom box.

If you have used a computer, then you have also used a computer keyboard. And if that’s true, you surely saw and probably also used its function keys.
