Chumby Classic

The Chumby Classic isn’t our favourite gadget of 2010. To begin with, its chunky shape and squishy leather casing make it feel like a Fisher Price toy: My First Web 2.0 Widget Device, perhaps. Its sheer purposelessness makes it seem like it was bought from a joke shop. And its price, most unforgivably of all,  Full Article…
