Step outside of the funky squishy blob and Chumby is a service delivering customised online content, just as your next TV will want to do. Why not break it out and offer a variety of devices? Well that's the plan for Chumby, to break out and take over every available screen in the future.
Chumby wins in the cute stakes: a squishy blob clad in Italian leather that doesn't take itself to seriously. It wins in the customisation stakes with plenty of apps to entertain, inform and distract you. And it is a real plus to be able to connect to your existing online content, Google apps, Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, Picasa so easily.
Terrifyingly distracting. Beautifully pointless. Hopelessly adorable.
