Sony’s simplicity

Sony's entry into the table radio space — inspiringly dubbed "the radio" — seems like a throwback for a company looking to reclaim the high-end with ambitious proprietary technology such as the now-delayed PlayStation 3 and SXRD displays, but much of the critique of its minimalist design is unwarranted. The name itself spells out the product's design philosophy and the monaural sound isn't a huge disadvantage especially keeping in mind the amount of AM programming that may find its way to the device. Besides, isn't boxy design cool again?
