Sony Dash update adds Shoutcast radio

updated 10:50 am EDT, Fri August 13, 2010

New firmware includes app management features

A new firmware update for Sony's Dash Personal Internet Viewer adds AOL's free Shoutcast Internet radio service to the Chumby-based device. Any of the Shoutcast stations can be used with the device's clock radio feature. The update also includes a shortcut to a thumbnail gallery for faster access to apps installed on the user's personal channel. The update installs automatically when the Dash is restarted by unplugging it momentarily then plugging it in again.

The Sony Dash was unveiled at this year's CES and went on sale in April. The WiFi-connected tabletop device plays local MP3 files and can post Facebook updates. The Dash can be customized with over 1,000 apps available for the Chumby OS. Apps are pre-installed for Blip.tv, Crackle, Epicurious, Livestrong, Pandora and YouTube.
