    Right now I just have: Calendar, Clock, Weather, Dictionary/Thesaurus, Translator, Phone Book. I'd have my address book up if I'd get it organized with like, addresses and stuff.

    *shrug* my powerbook is still running jaguar & my powermac is running panther.

    The software I use on an almost daily basis is expensive enough to keep updated anyway that these almost yearly OS upgrades only get consideration if they're necessary. That being said, my macs do what I need 'em to. And yes, mac users are way cooler... haha.

    I find that I don't use it much because of the extra mouse click:
    • Clock
    • Stock (Dow Jones)
    • Weather (New York)
    • Dictionary/Thesaurus
    • Itunes controller
    • Calculator
    • Calendar

    Same here. I think they should make icon versions that are maybe twice the size of a regular icon to sit on your desktop. Or something. Maybe a small menu bar that can be moved. -shrug- I think the Dashboard & Widgets are a good idea, just not fully conceived yet.

    I like the word of the day todays word is: ephemeral = a life span that that begins and ends in one day such as an ephemeral flower. And lets not forget "hot or not" its just funny. Anyway, "more flower power please".
