Cute, indeed. Though I don't see how Magnavox was a 'creator of CD technology'

Embarassing myself on the Internet since 1978.

Magnavox has been a subsidiary of Philips since 1974. So it is a bit of an indirect reference to their parent company which was the "creator of CD technology".

Kind of like how, when Warner absorbed DC, they put out commercials talking about how "our superheroes have been fighting for justice since the 1920s" or whatever.



(BTW, it's spelled < y'all >.)
