“Gadgets” seem to be something available in Windows Vista, and can appear in three places:
- Windows Sidebar: as far as I can make out, this is Microsoft’s version of Konfabulator for Vista.
- Windows SideShow: this is a new technology in Vista that allows the use of external displays (e.g. a display on the outside of a laptop, or using a PocketPC as an external display). Of course you can do this right now if get a lot more ghetto about it.
Looks interesting, but seem ultimately frustrating, given it’s a Vista technology that we won’t be seeing for at least 12 months. In the mean time, Konfabulator kicks arse. Try it.
