Chumby Powered devices in Black Friday sale, bunnie writes –

Infocast 99Bucks

First of all, two chumby-powered devices under the Insignia brand in Best Buy are on sale for Black Friday. The original 8″ Infocast device — an 800 MHz linux PC with an 8″ SVGA LCD and touchscreen — is rumored to be on sale for as low as $99 in some stores, although Best Buy’s on-line price pegs it at $129. Either way, it’s a smashing deal for a linux PC.

    and a Chumby One.

    Great product and so hackable too. I may have to break down and get the Chumby Hacker Board here from Adafruit so I have a whole Family. ( listening Santa? )
