If you thought Chumby would stop at digital photo frames, you were wrong. Dead wrong. Today, the widget-loving company has announced a tie-up with Broadcom that will integrate its rich media internet platform onto system-on-a-chip (SoC) solutions that will eventually find their way into HDTVs, set-top-boxes and Blu-ray players. Essentially, Chumby is making sure it doesn’t miss out on the quickly filling insert-your-connected-device-here bandwagon, and quite frankly, we’ll be shocked if any of those other guys can rival what Chumby’s bringing. After all, widgets are this company’s forte, and we’re downright giddy at the thought of having over 1,000 internet-connected snippets of information at our fingertips while intently watching future episodes of Lie To Me. Hey, TV / STB makers — jump on this. Now. Video demonstration is after the break.
