That TV Tracker widget is SWEET. I just have the free over-the-air TV right now, so this is perfect!<br><br>Dashboard is slowly getting useful for me. But it's going to take the right widgets to use it on a regular basis. <br><br>
I have that site in the RSS section and I keep an eye out for any useful widgets.<br><br>Automator is another cool tool that I want to learn more about. Check out these workflows:<br><br>email_photo<br>Basically, it allows you to select any image(s) from your iPhoto library without opening that application, makes copies of them into a temporary folder and then resizes the copies as specified by you. It then sends them to a new email message as attachments - you add the addressee details, send it and then the action deletes the temporary folder from your desktop.<br><br>About Resize Photoshop Documents<br>This action will resize each of the passed Photoshop documents to a specied width, height, and resolution. <br><br>About Photoshop Actions for Automator<br>A free set of Automator Actions for driving Photoshop CS or CS 2. This ever-growing collection is completely free and includes: <br>- Create new document <br>- Change Mode <br>- Arbitrary Rotate <br>- Unsharp Mask <br>- Gaussian Blur <br>- Edit IPTC Info <br>- Auto Levels <br>- and many more.<br><br><br>and some more Photoshop ones but they are only demos...<br><br>

I use the screen corners cos my mouse buttons do other, more important things from app to app.<br><br>Bottom left activates Dash, top left reveals the desktop and bottom right reveals all windows. Top right disables the screensaver. I'm so used to the corners that I find myself pointing to the bottom right all day on the XP machine at work.<br><br>
I used to use the scrollwheel button to open tabs in Safari, but then I switched to Firefox and got weened off of it. <br><br>Now I'm back to Safari and I'm torn as to which is better. Quick widgets or quick tabs, quick widgets or quick tabs, quick.... <br><br>
