Ok, its not made yet, but I've just had the idea, and I can't get it out of my head, so I'm gonna write it down, let me know what you think. Ok, for starters, think doodling, and imagine you have a wacom tablet too. Now, I'm the type of guy who likes a clean desktop, so no annoying stickies, stock tickers, or weather reports. I use Butler cause I like it up there in the menu bar where things belong. However, I occasionally have great idea (yeah right), need to write things down, and generally want to sketch things occasionally, or write something on my to do list. Problem is, I don't want to have all sorts of apps open up on my nice screen. So, imagine you had a dashboard widet that covered your whole desktop, only its completely transparent. Of course you would need to have it activate somehow and turn off somehow, so you could still click on files and volumes on your desktop, but maybe it could only cover the part of one's desktop not used by icons. Then, you just sketch things on it, like a doodle, or a small sketch of how you want to design something, or maybe you write out something to do, prehaps it could include apple's inkwell tecknology. It would be exactly like drawing, right on your dektop, or writing right on it, like an etch-a-sketch or something. It would just appear in slightly opaque white lines over everything else on your desktop. Then, and here's the cool part, when you're done, by hitting a hot key or something, the widget would automatically draw a box around your drawing or text, leaving a bit of a border so it doesn't look annoying, and it would "separate" from the desktop and become its own little sticky, that you can drag around and move (but it still has a transparent background). It gets even better. You can leave it on your desktop, or drag it off to some application on the dock or whatever. Maybe it can interface with butler, and you can drag it off to a corner of the screen, or hit a key and a menu comes up, and you send it to a favorite app. For instance, you can send sketches to Illustrator or photoshop, or hit cmd-x and have them sent to the clipboard, or to some sort of sticky app. Or, if it recognizes your handwriting, you can send it to iCal, Word, a to-do list. You can move them around, delete them, or push them to the edge of the screen to look at later. So the basic idea would be to get rid of bits of apps sticking out on your desktop, and just draw right on it and then send it to the apps you want, instead of opening them and adding each thing individually. Ok, maybe I'm not explaining it so well, but you'll get the idea. Yes, I realize I just thought of sketching on my desktop when i like it clean, but its little bits of apps that bother me, not my own sketches. I'm sure people can think of better uses for this idea than me, so let me know what you think.
