Reading up on ARStechnica forums it sounds like they are easy* to make. Looking at this site http://feed://www.dashboardwidgets.com/feeds/showcase.php you get ones like these:<br><br>Garfield Daily 0.2 by DeMango<br>DashPhoon 0.2 by kps<br>ClassicNotePad 1.1 by kalleboo<br>Lotto 0.2 by MacBiXo<br>SL Reseplanerare 0.2 by boo<br><br>etc. None of which are much use.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>*easy for those who know how to!<br><br>
Yeah...so far, so lame. <br><br>What I want:<br><br>--An eBay widget<br><br>--A Movies widget<br><br>--A TV Guide widget<br><br>--A weather widget that allows you to select either from multiple weather sources or use weather.com<br><br>

Well then, I guess the lure of writing a freebie Dashboard widget hasn't exactly inspired a wave of volunteers to donate their time and efforts to please you.<br><br>[color:red]Allez Cuisine! Bang a gong, it is on</font color=red>
