"Sony Corporation (ソニー株式会社 Sonī Kabushiki Gaisha?), commonly referred to as Sony, is a Japanese multinational conglomerate corporation headquartered in Kōnan Minato, Tokyo, Japan. Its diversified business is primarily focused on the electronics (TV, gaming consoles, refrigerators), game, entertainment and financial services sectors. It was established on May 7, 1946 as Tokyo Tsushin Kogyo (Tokyo Telecommunications Engineering Corporation). Its founders derived the name from sonus, the Latin word for sound, and also from the English slang word "sonny", since they considered themselves to be "sonny boys", a loan word into Japanese which in the early 1950s connoted smart and presentable young men"
