Chumby

Just caught sight of a new device called Chumby.  I’ve often wanted a bedside device that serves not only as an alarm clock, but has some intelligence.  For example:  If it snowed over 6 inches overnight, wake me up 20min early in case I want to cross-country ski to work.  Or perhaps, if I haven’t run in a few days – wake me up an hour early and tell me to go running, maybe play a good running song to remind me how nice I’ll feel once I get out there.  The device is being promoted as being able to do almost anything – and it’s open source hardware to boot… so theoretically it could do almost anything.
