These desktop speakers from Sony are an interesting approach to computer audio. Fashioned quite accurately after stick figure drawings, the tiny 1W twins have a couple of st-mini connections onboard for desktop and laptop use. They may boast excellent sound reproduction, but Sony is a little too proud of their speakers-on-a-stick, asking for $49.99 at SonyStyle. For that price you can almost buy ten Logitech desktop speakers with twice the wattage. Obviously wattage ratings aren't the only factor to consider when buying speakers, but when you charge five times more than the competition it's worth considering. If you're really dying to have a pair, they can be found elsewhere for a less appalling $19.95. [Sony Stick Figure Speakers via Geek Sugar]
Long ago, when I was really into audio equipment, I learned an excellent rule to follow: never buy speakers from an electronics company and never buy electronics from a speaker company. Sony is an electronics company. Once upon a time they made awesome electronics stuff and sometimes they still do. But they have never ever made any speakers worth buying. And then to go and make them overpriced too? Uh-uh.
