    This is cool

    I was looking for an internet radio and saw this on Black Friday. So I thought what the heck and bought it while there was still some left. This thing is fun!! I can listen to NPR and read my local newspaper's RSS feed. Listen to Christmas music with a crackling fire on the screen. Read the Headlines of the New York Times or check my local weather all from a touch of the screen at my kitchen counter. Or I can use it simply as a picture frame. I Found a hack on line to make it a web browser, and although clunky it does work. The unit was easy to set up and the touch screen is very responsive. There are all kinds of forums out there for this device and the future looks great. In my opinion, for a first generation product, this unit is well worth the money and I hope with future updates it will have more useful apps.

    Fun gadget!

    Very versatile gadget for the money. There are so many things you can do with the infocast that I'm still discovering new ways to use it. I have the infocast set up in my kitchen and it's a great way to get a quick summary of the weather, news, e-mail, facebook, etc. while I'm getting ready for my day. It's also nice being able to access pictures and other content stored on my computer, although this does not always work properly for me (pictures sometimes refuse to load). Streaming Pandora works flawlessly and the built-in speakers sound surprisingly good. One word of caution: This is not a device for the technologically-impaired. My wife has yet to learn how to find her way around its features. But she does like to look at it :-)

    its a digital frame on crack!! I love my chumby. touch screen works great, widgets and apps for it. last night i had my chumby working as a mood light on pointed on my wall (its that bright), changing the white walks into soft colors, was awesome. I love the apps, plus you can have chumby interact with facebook , craiglist, the new york times, twitter, freaking even Ebay. I get up in the, change it from clock mode to playing my featured apps and I know the news, traffic, weather and whats going on in the world before going out the door. plays music with built in stereo speakers..its just really cool. buying a second one this month!! I havent even investigated the hacks and alterations people have put out for it, just the basics are freaking cool.

    I wish they had more of them at the price I paid. We already got more than seventy five dollars worth of fun out of it. if it was just an internet radio it would be worth it. It tells us the time, shows photos, videos, plays games, weather, news, you-tube, more applications everyday. Now I may have to get a Dash, too. Not as useful, but has Netflix. It says it does all the above with a computer- but it is one. Linux. opensource, hackable. Some top Apps: Facebook Photos Sports Headlines New York Times - Sports Facebook Status New York Times - Top Stories NFL Scores ET - Celebrity News Fantasy Football Columns New York Times - Fashion

    I was looking for and inexpensive way to get internet radio (for NPR) and Pandora that every one in the house could use. This turned out to be the perfect solution. The whole family from my 3 year old son to my teenage daughters have their favorite apps from games, to news to learning. Last month I added a alarm clock version for my 10 year old son and he uses it every day. It's not going to replace your tablet or laptop but I can't imagine it sitting in the corner collecting dust.

    I love my Chumby. Great little tabletop device

    It's a digital photo frame on steroids. Wireless works seamlessly. Decent selection of apps from the Chumby app site. Creating content channels is easy, and customizing display of apps in a channel is easy too. It is a good content reader. Can read gmail, facebook, etc, but can't reply or upload stuff. Plays media files via usb, memory cards, network shares, etc. Speakers are alarm clock quality. Not too bad.

    I got this for my wife for Christmas because she wanted something to play music in the kitchen. With the Pandora music streaming app... that did the trick. She loves it! She is not a gadget friendly person, so this is impressive. There are some features I wish were there, but the software is being updated and the software vendor is open to suggestions.
