the Ibuka convinced that the tape recorder's future, then Europe and the United States has this product, but in Japan no one has mastered the manufacturing process of the tape., they finally shipped 50 recorder in 1950, the quality is very good, but the price was too high. Morita later recalled: "Our customers not yet exist to produce a 50 tape recorder, but into a product that people want to buy commodities, Masaru Ibuka, and I have no experience time, Morita produced an idea: Since this machine is too expensive for individual administrative departments, why not sell it? proved, the courts and the school's very interested.

in semiconductor applications demonstrated Masaru Ibuka and Morita's shrewd late 1940s, developed by Bell Labs in the United States successfully semiconductor, however, no one imagine that it will be used in the manufacture of false ear a wide range of uses 1953, Sheng Tian to the U.S. negotiating purchase of patents, the transaction quickly reached, but on one condition: shall not manufacture fake ear! Sheng Tian can not wait to accept the. interesting is, trouble touches from Japan, through production provincial also do not understand the benefits of semiconductor opposed to spend $ 25,000 to buy its patent. Morita had to find the relationship between intercede, and finally win a green light. Morita'll never forget it, he said: "MITI did not initially like a as some people claim to actively promote the Japan Electronic Industry Development. "
Ibuka leadership team is expected to semiconductor tremendous usefulness, later it has revolutionized the electronics industry it is this year, the Tokyo electronics company decided renamed Sony "Sony" word derived from the Latin "sonus" (sound) 1957 Sony produced the first portable transistor radio, you can put in your pocket where in fact, its size is larger than ordinary pocket. okay, sewing the pocket the Morita dignitaries to the salesman overalls. a business sense Morita, Ibuka talented engineers hard at work. They under the impetus of the 1960s, Sony introduced a three-in-one TV and the first batch of semiconductor recorders, won a worldwide reputation in the field of home appliances. subsequently, Sony is leading the way in many home appliances.
Morita like to get rid of stereotypes of Japanese companies, quite bold. late 1980s, before leaving office, Morita, has acquired the U.S. CBS Corporation and Columbia Pictures a move that shocked the United States, "Newsweek said:" part of the American soul is sold .
