Widgets and widJets

Konfabulator has been relaunched as Yahoo Widgets. Very interesting technology. Easy to create, small and useful. I wonder if Yahoo can make it catch on. I wouldn’t be surprised if Google comes out with something similar. And Microsoft is already experimenting with “Gadgets”, but who knows what will catch on.

I suggest to Adobe/Macromedia to come out with the same kind of think in Flash. They should have acquired Konfabulator a long time ago.

Side note: I am making a nice comeback in the football pool. But the Jets look as bad as ever. Should they get a running back in the draft or a quarterback? I think they should trade down and get lower picks. All the statisticians say that you have the same chance of success lower in the draft. The Jets. They are humiliating.
