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.

Whatya think?
