    There are now 109 widgets for the dashboard on the apple website alone (god know how many more you'll find if you look in versiontracker etc!)
    Admitted, some of them are not as useful as they may be, but all this in only 10 days is pretty amazing! The best thing: They're almost all free!
    How many are we going to have in a month!

    We can now feel superior to windows in EVERY way, as there is widget to play solitaire. It may be mini, but it's OK!

    Some widgets are of dubious value. Especially all those that take you to Safari if you click on anything inside the widget. A bookmark would suffice in that regard.

    On the other hand, there is already a widget to look up the yellow pages in the UK, I thought i'd have to wait a lot longer for that!
    There are some others out there which are useful too. Of the 109, I'd say 20 or so were genuinely rubbish "straight-to-safari" types.
