It seems too good a deal to pass up, but I wonder if I would use it. Do you 
need an O2 account to get the most from it or can it be hacked to use other 
services, e.g. Google. I can imagine it as a super alarm clock that would tell 
me the weather, news and traffic. It's a bit like the Chumby which I 
considered, but a friend claimed they were not that great


I'm ponder it some more in Kiev if my flight tomorrow is not cancelled due to 
ash clouds.
