Topic: My family loves the Chumby!
I knew I was going to love it, but I can't believe my wife (who usually abhors technological curiosities) and my 18 month old son love the Chumby!
My Wife loves the ability to see the weather on it at a glance. I am using it as an alarm clock on our nightstand, and she can just look at it and see the forcast.
My son loves the touchscreen and all the fun little visual widgets (especially the face maker and the archive.org videos of bugs bunny cartoons) I was amazed at how quick he picked up on it being a touch screen and now pokes at it whenever he gets near. I have always wanted to share some fun technology things with him, but being 18 months old he can't be trusted with a laptop, or PSP or anything else for that matter. The Chumby I feel safe with him holding and playing with since it is soft and not in danger of being bricked by a miraculous series of button-presses.
Thanks Chumby! I am eager to see what the future brings to my little chumbucket (the name is from Spongebob Squarepants)
