Today Woot! is offering a Sony Dash Personal Internet Viewer for only $59.99 + $5 S&H. What is the Dash? Basically it is a less cuddly Chumby. It runs the Chumby platform and has access to over 1,000 Chumby apps – Twitter, Facebook, Netflix, YouTube, Pandora, Slacker, Photobucket, news, weather, traffic, stock prices, etc., and a web browser, of course.
You can use it as a digital photo frame capable of so much more than the typical models. Or as a high-end alarm clock that you can roll over and check the morning news, weather, and traffic on. Or go to sleep while streaming Netflix. It has a 7″ 800×480 LCD touch screen display and 802.11b/g WiFi for connectivity. It is no iPad or Android tablet, but it also costs a fraction of what those do. It is inexpensive enough to leave as a dedicated Internet terminal around the house. Or give one to a less tech savvy relation for access to specific services made even simpler than a tablet, without a major investment.
This is 60% off the MSRP of $199.99, and Amazon sells these new for $92.95. And these are new, not refurbished.
