This bad boy's been floating around for a while, but those of you looking to hop on the secondary information device bandwagon but reluctant to purchase anything that doesn't loudly proclaim your love of Linux might want to check out the Tux Droid. The $99 wireless version of everyone's favorite mascot will alert you to nearly anything you want via an adorable combination of wing-flapping, dancing, spinning, and light-flashing, and the open-source codebase means that there's already quite a library of plugins besides the usual email and RSS monitors. Tux snags info from his included (ridiculous) USB fish transmitter, but he can also function as a VOIP phone, wireless speaker, and alarm clock -- and motion sensors mean you're also getting a guard penguin in the deal.
