Backstory: I bought Konfabulator a month ago…a great program that lets you use desktop widgets with Windows (hurry to Intel, Apple!)…
Action: Yahoo! bought the parent company 2 weeks ago and will be releasing the next version as freeware
Result: The company is refunding the purchase to anyone who bought the current version! So cool!!

Go now and download Konfabulator and lots of widgets. Good stuff…uh-huh.
