Without a doubt Dashboard will thrive as one of the greatest additions to OS X environment. Though many of you gripe about Apple's high pricing, I think it's benefitial because it keeps us a niche community, binded by asthetics and useability. The increase market will carry over PC-trash and by this I mean useless, poorly designed, no-attention-to-detail applications -- in the case of this thread, Dashboard Widgets. Not that it directly matters for it is ultimately the end-users choice to download, nevertheless 3rd party developers should strive to adhere to standards... a recent blog article agrees: http://mikey-san.net/damage/archives/2005/04/simply_dashing.html He points out some great ideas for widgets so I thought it'd be a good idea to discuss potential ideas. In addition, anyone who can offer services to assist with otehr developers. For isntance, I no little programming but can do great GUI design.

After reading through his blog, I'm really anticipating some great widgets.
