  1. There is a glaring error in the statement below:

    “Their timing is good. Windows Vista supports widgets, as will Apple’s forthcoming release of Mac OS X Leopard.”

    Om, Apple’s Mac OS 10.4 Tiger (shipped in ’05) more or less ushered in the dashboad/widget concept and was one of the often advertised features of that release.

  2. Actually my point is that in 10.5 widgets are going to even more useful. I think Apple website shows how easy it will be to create these widgets and actually do more with them. Not denying that dashboard is pretty awesome 🙂

  3. Speaking of mobile widgets, I’ve just created mine on WidSets and spotted yours there as well. After signing up with GigaOM’s widset for my mobile I found out that it was not up to sync with your current web publications. Did you discontinue updatting your widset’s widget?

  4. We have been developing enterprise widgets / gadgets for sometime. We are very excited about the touch points between Google and salesforce.com and have recently released a series of Google Gadgets for salesforce. They were based on a concepts from salesforce’s IdeaExchange and developed in just a few weeks. We initially developed yahoo widgets that had over 5000 downloads, but are much more excited about the web centric google gadgets.
