    I love the look of these www.chumby.com I can't order one from them but I could get one but they look a bit steep at about $200. Has anyone got one?

    Hehe, I saw one of these on a Chris Pirillo Youtube video. He loved it and its potential, but I agree they are a bit pricey! Here's the link if you want a funny review ^^ http://youtube.com/watch?v=vSwJ0gOLiKY

    My main question is how you control it. The feature list is great for an alarm clock, but if there isn't an elegant way to access the features it's pretty pointless.

    Sorry to bump up my thread but looks like chumbys may be coming to Australia so I am looking to buy one. Anyone had any experiences with them?

    Yeah I'm sorry but this was too easy to pass up. I totally misread this title.
    And these things have been around for ages. They're only now coming to AU?

    I just got one last week, and I love it. A choice of clocks, calendars, news widgets, etc. Plus, I use it as an internet radio nightly (no computer or any other radio in my bedroom).

    I run about 15 widgets on it, at about 15 seconds each (I run the Twitter and Facebook widgets for 30 seconds each). Yeah, $200 isn't cheap, but it was a very appreciated gift, and I'm very happy to have it.
