That’s right… it’s Chumby! This is definitely going to be a huge hit, and the favorite new gadget of many Geeks. I am having a lot of fun playing with the Chumby… and so are all the people in our live community!
The Chumby is a compact device that displays useful and entertaining information from the web using your wireless internet connection. Always on, it shows — nonstop — what’s online that matters to you. What can you do with a Chumby? The question is… what CAN’T you do with it?
- Catch the latest news headlines, sports, weather, stock prices.
- Play your iPod mp3 files through built in speakers. Charge it too.
- Enjoy your Flickr and Facebook photos as a digital picture frame.
- Stay updated on new Netflix releases or view your movie queue.
- Make and share e-greetings, photo mash-ups, goofy animations.
- Wake up to the multi-tone alarm clock.
- Track any eBay auction or Craigslist item.
- Monitor incoming email on any POP3 account.
The coolest thing is that I have my Chumby sitting on my desk, and it’s now tuned in to my live chat. Any regular voiced user or channel op can type a message, and it will display directly on my Chumby! At only $179.99, it’s a great way to stay connected and have some fun at the same time.
