The Inside Google Desktop blog announced the release of a new version of Google Desktop. The new version's main feature are Google Gadgets, some of the many widgets include Weather Globe, Google Calendar and many more.
Developers can also build Google Gadgets themselves, more information on that at SDK Overview section. Let's not forget that Yahoo bought Konfabulator and renamed it to Yahoo Widgets, plus I never use Apple's widgets (i.e. Dashboard).
Postscript From Danny: A few more points not covered in the Google blog post which are covered as part of Google Press Day presentations:
- It's supposed to automatically suggest gadgets to try based on your web
history. Go to a lot of movie sites? Then it might suggest movie-related
gadgets, for instance.
- The new Google Desktop will sync settings across computers, if you sign in
through a Google Account. It will remember your to do lists, gadget
preferences and other things regardless of where you are.
