Widget Watch: PEMDAS

Whilst I was attending school my teachers assured me that I would use the math I was learning in my day to day life. They lied. I can't remember the last time someone asked me to get the volume of a pyramid, or what the cosine of 12.3234 was. Since I am but a mere blogger PEMDAS isn't all that...

Widget Watch: Are you ready for some football?

Oh, yes I am. If you like a little NFL mixed in with you OS X, check out 2006 NFL by Kelly Phillips. It's a Dashboard widget that breaks down every game of the 2006 NFL season. Flip it over, and get each team's win/loss record, sorted by conference and division. If you just want to focus on a single...

Widget Watch: Mr. Alligator

Who says that widgets need to be useful? Certainly not Curious Media, the creators of Mr. Alligator. Mr. Alligator sits in your Dashboard and waits to be clicked on. When someone clicks on him a random sentence, pulled from words in a database, is displayed. Mr. Alligator can also speak the phrases...

Widget Watch: Dashalytics

I run a number of personal blogs, and like all bloggers I am obsessed with statistics (who doesn't want to know how unpopular their thoughts about their cats are?). Google Analytics is a great, free service from Google that gathers a number of stats from any website onto which you add Google's magic...

Widget Watch: Get Picture Framer for free

Monkey Business Labs and Photojojo are offering Picture Framer Deluxe, which usually costs $5, for free. Why are they doing this? Free publicity, I imagine. If you are looking for a Dashboard widget that can cycle through your iPhoto library, or your Flickr stream then you can't do better than this...

Widget Watch: MultiDash - workspaces for Dashboard

Looks like even Dashboard is getting in on this 'spaces' concept with MultiDash - a workspace manager for your Mac OS X 10.4 widgets. Flipping the widget over allows you to create separate workspaces, and it simply records which widgets are open, complete with a screenshot, when you create the...

Widget Watch: Leopard server monitor

Steve didn't make any note of Leopard server in his Keynote, which is a little sad. I can imagine all the engineers who work on the server OS waiting, hoping that Steve would note all the cool new features. Sadly, they were out of luck but unlike Steve I will mention one of the new features, namely...

Widget Watch: Reuters Widget

Attention news junkies: Reuters, that wire service of wire services, has released a free widget for Dashboard. What does it do? It displays up to 10 headlines from your Reuters news channel of choice. Simple, blue, and useful. That's just how I like my widgets. Update: I also like my widgets to...

Widget Watch: Telescope, a Basecamp widget

After blogging the Basecamp widget, TUAW reader Mike Jacobsen wrote in to let us know about a Basecamp widget he recently launched for Dashboard, called Telescope. For now, Telescope appears to be more of a monitoring widget than anything, allowing users to: List current projects View last 25...

Widget Watch: QuickMail

QuickMail DashMail might not be the prettiest Dashboard widget I've ever seen, but it certainly is one of the most functional: it allows you to send a quick email from Gmail, .Mac, Yahoo, AOL or AIM, and even has the option for entering custom server settings for those who like to blaze their own...

Widget Watch: bpiDash - a second widget for Backpack

Finally, some competition in the Backpack widget department: bpiDash (from the maker of dashLicious) is a Backpack widget that more or less matches the other Backpack widget we've always known about from Chipt. bpiDash, however, has a unique trick up its sleeve: populating a note with text from the...

Widget Watch: Basecamp

Basecamp is an award-winning, web-based project management service from the much-loved 37Signals, makers of the equally-loved Backpack. Since Backpack has had its own widget for a while now, it seems that Kennedia Consulting felt it was high time Basecamp received the Dashboard treatment as well....

Widget Watch: iStat Pro 3.0

iStat Pro 3.0 has been released and it is one of the only widgets that I actually find useful. It displays all sorts of information about your Mac at a glance, and in version 3.0 it is even easier to read. 4 new skins and new anti-aliased graphs for cpu and memory really make this widget a cut...
