Hot skills, cool Chumby IBM Training promotion that is taking place right now. After each entry, the web master thanks me for all the referrals, as it seems that people are reading my entries and are following the links! Thanks to all of you!
Here are the details for the promotion:
With this promotion you will learn new skills with world-class IBM instructors, AND you can also get a Chumby device (value $179.95 USD) to take home at the end of the class!
So... what is a Chumby?The chumby is a compact device that displays useful and entertaining information from the web: news, photos, music, weather, celebrity gossip, webcams, sports scores — using your wireless internet connection. Always on, it shows — nonstop — what's online that matters to you. I highly recommend you view the Chumby demo. Click the What the heck is a chumby button.
The Chumby sounds cool... but how does it work?Just plug it in, connect to your wireless network, and use your computer to choose a playlist of "widgets" (the bite-sized applications that run on a chumby). And if, say, you want to see news, the surf report, and traffic in the morning, and animations, web cams and eBay auctions at night, you can group widgets in "channels." Watch constantly updated info, or use interactive widgets that take advantage of its touchscreen or motion sensor. You can even share widgets and send ecards to other people's chumbys.
With over 700 widgets across 30 different categories such as weather, social networks, photos, sports, news, entertainment, videos and much more, you'll find lots of stuff you'll love.
Which courses are eligible?Check out ibm.
If you are lucky enough to get a Chumby... let me know what you think of it.
