Just acquiesced to the request to not wear these out.

My Vibram Five Finger shoes. Living with women means knowing when to let them tell you what to do.

New Chumby is available next month

Many of my friends all comment on the original Chumby in our house. We use it as a clock, whole-house Pandora player and Google Calendar display among other things. Here is a snippest from Engadget on the newest release...

Wrapping one's brain around Chumby's original concept -- drop some Flash-based widgets inside a plush vinyl sphere with WiFi and a touchscreen -- has never been an easy task, but after a couple years of low-key retail action, it looks like the company's finally ready to bring a new version into the mix that might be a little more mainstream. The simply-named One dispenses of the old model's squeezable shell, earning a more businesslike appearance and trading up to a slightly speedier 454MHz core (not to say you need a lot of horsepower when you're lackadaisically cruising feeds, weather forecasts, and clock faces on a QVGA screen, but we're not complaining)

It is rumored to be around $100 when it launches next month - I will put a link up then.
