Widget Screenie

Last night I went to the lounge to study Comp Sci with john, and i noticed he had some widgets on his desktop. I asked him what it was, and he told me that Konfaulator had become part of Yahoo's "Yahoo! Widget Engine"

So last night i downloaded it and gave it a try, and WOW! I love it! All of them for the most part have been seen before of other desktop enhancement programs i've used (See google sidebar, DS sidebar) Except, for a few widgets, my favorite in particular is iTunes agent.

Not only does it display the album art of the song you are listening to, but if there is no album art, it will find it, download it, and export it to iTunes for you! And lyrics too!!!! So now, im letting it play like everysone i own, so i can fill up my album arts and lyrics!

The picture frame is cool too, because it can connect to your Flickr ever since Yahoo bought Flickr. And everything in general is nice and shinny.

Yahoo! Widget Engine gets my Thumbs Up!

  1. i came to this post looking for one of those convenient little links you put in your posts so i could go to the download page only to find there was no such little convenient little link that you put in your posts so i could go to the download page.
    Needless to say: I’m dissapointed.
