Chumby Gets Pandora

Chumby today added support for a new set of features on its namesake customizable Internet media device. The updates are headlined by the addition of Pandora's radio streams; users can now listen to their personal Internet music feeds on the device and flag songs as they would on a computer or cellphone to favorite certain music styles or exclude others. Pandora can also be used as the default alarm along with other usual sources. Using the new stream on the Chumby is free.

In addition to the audio update, Chumby also says it has added music videos from Avot Media and the ability to search for other video types through web search engines. More news is also an option and comes from Rolling Stone's online edition.

Chumby continues to cost $180 in any one of multiple colors and serves as a multi-function, open source Wi-Fi device that also serves as a media player for USB devices, either playing AAC, MP3 and other formats directly from mass storage or supporting some iPod models.

    This thing can check weather, news; it can be a clock "radio", digital picture frame - all kinds of stuff.
