Sony's USB speaker is, well, ugly

New Vaio speaker is almost as big as its latest laptop

Sony has a secret: When it designs impossibly small products , it often leaves some features on the drafting-room floor. Then it offers "extras" sold separately.

OK, it's not just Sony. But we needed a hook to write about an otherwise boring-looking product. Anyway, at 10 inches across and 18 ounces, Sony's new USB Vaio speaker is almost as big and heavy as its latest laptop . Most disappointing of all is the design. With so many museum-quality speakers on the market, one would think that Sony , of all companies, could have done better.
