Gadget fans rejoice here comes the Chumby

LCD photoframes are so last year. Why shouldn't your new desktop friend replace your alarm clock and keep you updated with the latest newsfeeds/vids of your choice? The Chumby promises to be a multi-function 'net-connected' device that allows anyone to develop 'widgets' for it.. I can't wait to see these appear on this side of the pond.

At this point the only surprise left with the Chumby always-on widget box was when it was going to finally go on sale -- we've seen the specs, gone hands-on, seen the retail unit, and generally gone gaga for widgets with this thing -- so we're pleased to report that the Chumby store is now taking orders for the box, in your choice of white, latte (pictured) and black. $179 gets you the box, but it's how developers and users use this thing that'll really be the story. No concrete word on a ship date, but since "insiders" have been playing with these since last month, we're betting it'll be soon. Source: Engadget
