    This beta program just launched from Google yesterday. Can you say dashboard and spotlight?

    They call them "Gadgets" and they index your computer so you can search for anything on it (spotlight). Hmmm....

    Apple took those same two pages from someone else.

    Apple didn't invent widgets or search tools.

    You could argue that Desk Accessories from System 6 were the first widget.
