Yahoo! will announce Monday the 25th that they have acquired Konfabulator. An upside to this news is that the company will be removing the $19.95 charge and making it completely free. Some ideas thrown around are that Yahoo! wants to open it's API's to the Mac Desktop crowd as Google has not made the effort yet. Others say that the price was too good due to the release of Mac OS 10.4 and it's widget/Dashboard capabilities. Will this be a boost for the fledgling geniuses behind such concepts as embedded desktop widgets and the Dashboard, or a last hurrah?
My take is that this will bring decent Mac and Windows desktop components that are non-intrusive and more helpful than current endeavors from the major web search engines.
