Despite what you might think from looking at the logo to the right, Chumby is not the first cousin of Gumby. Chumby is a startup that makes a real-life product that bears the same name. Their product is an “internet radio, digital picture frame, alarm clock, and more.” The “and more” includes news, social networking, weather, and games. It’s a dead simple Internet device that seems perfect for your bedside or the breakfast table. I’ve never actually tried a Chumby, but the reviews are glowing. At the very least it’s a cool niche product, and there’s certainly the potential for a Chumby to replace the alarm clock.

    Chumby is interesting, but I prefer my iPod Touch, which accesses the same sites and is much more portable due to its shape. I can’t imagine comfortably reading the news and using other apps (as shown on the Chumby site) on an object the size and shape of a Chumby. I leave my iPod Touch on my nightstand connected to speakers and listen to podcasts or Pandora a I fall sleep. I let its alarm wake me in the morning, and I check the news before I even get out of bed. And I take it downstairs with me where it continues to be useful and not get in the way. I’m sure there is an audience for the Chumby, but I prefer a more portable device.

  2. We should have you write the promotional material for the iPod Touch that we just gave away. Maybe we would have had more entries in the contest.
