If you don’t want to splash out on a netbook, or perhaps just want a simple introduction to the wonders of the web for a loved one, take a quick look at the Chumby widget box.
Connect it up to your Wi-Fi internet connection, and the Chumby will let you browse as many as 1500 internet widgets. It’s a simple, intuitive device that makes use of a 3.2 inch touchscreen to let you browse content from Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and a whole host of other sites.
The Chumby also comes with built in 2W speakers, an accelerometer for gaming and two USB ports for accessing a limited range of media files.
You can pickup a Chumby from Firebox priced £139.99, or for more information on the widget box, click here.
