Gadget Sneak Peek

Someone’s posted the source for some of the gadgets from Tiger‘s Dashboard, which is not a rip>off of Konfabulator. Very nice implementation: I could see how easy it would be to implement. {via}

[UPDATE: Dave Hyatt, Safari developer, weighs in on the controversy and suggests that gadgets/widgets be seen as “a logical extension of the Web sidebar panel metaphor fused with Exposé.” That’s certainly a novel and fruitful way of looking at it—one that certainly suggests the thinking process behind Dashboard and how it wasn’t derived (necessarily) from Konfabulator.]
