Widgets for Windows

A few months ago, I was introduced to "widgets" on a Mac system and was intrigued. Widgets are small programs that don't need a web browser or other application to open them and they can remain open yet in the background on your desktop. I found a favorite game on a Mac widget and was disappointed to come back to my widget-less Windows system (okay, only partially disappointed!). Now Yahoo! is offering a similar program allowing widgets to work on Windows machines! I downloaded the first ones today - my favorites so far are the weather station and the comic strip reader. Check out PC Magazine's article and download the program at Yahoo!

Happy Weekend-ing!
