I gotta give Sony some credit for giving misfit products a chance. The company won me over with its Rolly dancing robot egg, and the $500 PFR-V1 totally shattered my expectations for home audio headphones.

The company's latest foray into misfit tech is the Sony Dash , a $199 tabletop "personal Internet viewer" with a 7-inch touch-screen display and a lot of potential.

The Dash isn't for everyone, and it's hard to argue for its practicality--but you do get a good bang for your buck. Whether you're looking for a cool way to stream Pandora or Slacker radio in your home, glance the local weather conditions before heading out the door, or catch up on your newsfeeds over breakfast, the Dash can handle it.
