Widgets to Microsoft Gadgets

Well since Yahoo has Konfabulator, Google has its Sidebar and Apple has its Dashboard Widgets, Microsoft needed to come-up with something. A brand new category imaginatively called — drum roll pleaseMicrosoft Gadgets. I like to call it, “A million new ways to get hacked.”

> Gadgets are a new category of mini-application designed to provide information, useful lookup, or enhance an application or service on your Windows PC or the Web.

And then you wonder why Steve is busting a cap, worried about people hightailing it to Mountain View/Sunnyvale. Or should I say, originality, thy name is not Microsoft. Or as Steve Jobs would like to say, “Redmond Start Your Photocopiers.” (PS, not that Steve hasn’t maxed out his Xerox machine either!)
