Engadget says the end may be near for quirky little Chumby. We have a Chumby in the kitchen, and wouldn’t it be nice if the service is maintained somewhere, so all those little Web radio alarm clocks keep working for a year or two more?

Update: From Venture Beat – “CEO Derrick Oien told The Verge that Chumby’s assets, which include widget technology, patents, and the platform, are being shopped around by a corporate trustee. The content and apps platform, however, will stay operational for the immediate future.”
