The "personal Internet viewer" alarm clocks saw some popularity when they were released but horrible reviews nailed the coffin.
Reads Sony's site: "Beginning February 29, 2012, the Sony dash developer website (http://dash.sonydeveloper.com) will close and no longer support development of new applications. This closure includes the dash developer forum and dash developer support email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) which will close on March 31, 2012. Sony dash applications will remain available. Thank you for your contributions and we encourage you to continue your development activity on Sony's other platforms available at SonyDeveloper.com."
The original Dash machine has a 7-inch touchscreen, 800x480 resolution, a 500Mhz processor and 256MB DDR2 RAM.
What makes the alarm clocks popular is access to 1500 apps for weather, traffic, social networking, movies, music and games.
