Chumby “Grab a Chumby!” No, that’s not an obscene saying but what a startup company with a wireless Internet device that displays information scrapped from the web like news, photos, weather, sports scores, blogs, clock and anything else you can program a widget for wants you to do.

After you use your computer to setup your playlist of “widgets” you simply watch the content on a 3.5″ LCD screen. The device includes two external USB 2.0 full-speed ports, 64MB of SDRAM, 64MB NAND flash ROM, stereo 2W speakers, headphone output, a motion sensor, a squeeze sensor and the Chumby is powered by a 350 MHz ARM processor.
