Everybody LOVES Widgets!   So what is your favorite one?

I have two, the Album Art widget and the MST3k widget.

Album art pulls the cover art of whatever music i'm listening to and lets me rate the songs, MST3k widget simply has a black outline of two robots and a man making fun of my dashboard.

Where the hell'd you get the MST3k widget? I can't find it.

Personally, I find myself using pearLyrics a lot.

What the hell are widgets? I hear the word"Widget", I think of the little floating plastic ball in beer cans that make your bitter foam up when you pour it...

I always thought a widget was like a wiffle ball.

I found the mst3k widget on the Apple website, it's pretty sweet.

Widgets are mini-programs for OS X Tiger's new program Dashboard.  Widgets are horribly useful, my set up has the weather, tv listings, wikipedia (that's how I learned Jeph was dead!) search, wi-fi detector, system information, etc, etc.  I love Dashboard!

widgets have been around for windows for quite a while, but after you realize how terribly worthless they really are you end up ditching them

that slogan is a good slogan. so good, in fact, I think it should be applied to other things. like, "there's no wrong way to hit your spouse." or "there's no wrong way to commit nonconsentual sodomy."

Um, you're not really making much of a case for the usefulness of widgets here. ;)

Jeez, Widget the world watcher. A reminder that not all '80s cartoons were great... (was that '80s or early '90s... I forget, but you know what I mean.
