My Tuxdroid keeps me company every Wednesday night as I do the Tech Show, and now Tuxdroid has a brand new buddycalled My Desk Friend. His real name is Pingo, and he will read your mail to you, update you on your friends’ Facebook status, dance around your desktop, as well as read RSS feeds. Pingo is much smaller than Tuxdroid. Little Pingo can fit in the palm of your hand, and Pingo has 2 wheels, a Microphone, a speaker, 2 multicolored eyes and sensors to prevent him from rolling off the table.
The only problem I have with Pingo is that he only works with Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Mac OS X (10.5 or 10.6). There is no Linux software for it. Don’t they know Linux dudes love penguins?
Pingo is available today for about $149 at their website. Orders must be placed by December 13th to receive by December 23rd so don’t delay.
