Google announced this week a new version of it's desktop search app that now includes desktop gadgets. This is the same technology first made popular by Konfabulator, now owned by Yahoo. Apple does the same with their desktop widgets. Now Google, a day late and a dollar short. Google's gadgets are fine, but not anything better than what Yahoo and Apple already have. And Google's stuff only runs on a PC. At least Yahoo goes cross platform. How many gizmos do you need on your desktop anyway? I'm getting a little sick of these things. The only one that really helps me is the Gmail widget that can check multiple Gmail accounts at once. That's cool.
