    I was browsing CNN.com, and vertical web banner came up advertising, not iPods, but Macs. (It came up on the article pages, not the main page)

    I did some type of animations, and then I noticed the all black banner that simply said, "Widgets: Only on a Mac". (I didn't catch the animations because I never really pay attention to banner ads).

    I tried to refresh several times, but it never came back up.

    This is a good sign if Apple is beginning its Mac campaign...looks like they are actually going to concentrate on the OS.

    EDIT: Ok, it came up on an article on CNNfn, too. The animation shows the stock widget being used.

    These have been floating around since the release of Tiger months ago. You'll find them on Yahoo mail a lot.

    The ads have been around for about a week IIRC. Someone had a rant about how Konfabulator is available on Windows since its says 'Only on a Mac'.
