I previously mentioned the Chumby in our Holiday Gift Guide and have been waiting anxiously for its arrival. Well, that day finally came and IÃ¢â¬â¢ve detailed my experience below. If youÃ¢â¬â¢re not familiar with the Chumby, itÃ¢â¬â¢s a Linux-based gadget that connects up to the internet via WiFi, and sports a squeeze sensor, accelerometer, and a 3.5Ã¢â¬Â³ LCD color touchscreen. The coolest part about it is that it runs Adobe Flash-based widgets so pretty much anything you can imagine is (or will be) available for it, and Chumby includes an extensive list at Chumby.com. This whole package comes wrapped up in a nice leather casing, and is actually quite fun to squeeze.
