Just Got My Chumby

And it's the coolest thing ever. It's basically a touch-screen internet device in the form of a soft beanbag that runs widgets off the internet. It's designed to be open-source so anyone can design new widgets to run on it.

I'm having fun programming my Chumby. Some of my favorite widgets so far...

  • Facebook - shows the status of your friends
  • Weather forecast
  • Google calendar -- linked to your personal calendar
  • YouTube channel
  • RSS feed for your favorite blog

Anyone else have one?
