,----[ Quote ]
| The newly released Chumby One arrived in 
| the mail today, and we couldn't wait to see 
| how it compared to the original digital 
| connected companion device. The Chumby, in 
| case you haven't heard of it, is a multi-
| function gadget that can serve as an alarm 
| clock, RSS reader, gaming device, or music 
| player. It connects to the internet with 
| Wi-Fi, and runs user-created widgets to do 
| cool things like read your Gmail or send 
| you Twitter updates. You interact with it 
| through a 3.5 inch resistive touchscreen, 
| but it also has an accelerometer inside, 
| since it's made to be held and encourages 
| user interaction.
