Off topic, but I had to

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!!

Back to topic: I am guessing that Yahoo will tie a widget to Yahoo Maps…in fact it wouldn’t be too hard to tie a widget to Google Maps now…hmmmm 🙂

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