    I'd love to see a Hurricane/Typhoon tracking widget. Hurricane season runs from June through to November in the US, however Typhoons are a near permanent feature of the western pacific. A widget to track the progress of these storms would be very cool.

    Some sources of info for Hurricanes/Typhoons:

    I posted this on http://www.dashboardwidgets.com/ in the hope that someone might make one :D :D

    I think it'd be incredibly cool!
    I'll get off my butt and learn how to make a widget.
    Then, I will have an awesome skill to go along with my awesome numchuku(sp?). yesss.....

    No you're not. I used to be a major weather geek when I was younger and hurricanes were my favorite thing. I could tell you the name of every hurricane for select years, and even probably the maximum windspeed, location of landfall, and damage for a lot of them off of the top of my head. For me, a hurricane tracking widget would be sickass.
