Gadget Ahoy

I’ve been seeing lots of activity on the Desktop recently. Apple started it all off with their Dashboard built into OSX. All very impressive but hardly of much interest to Microsoft Windows users.

Anyway. Google have brought out a similar system for Windows users called Google Desktop. It has been through a few versions now and it looks pretty good.

As an experiment I thought it would be fun to create a Gadget as the Google Desktop plugins are called. So, that’s exactly what I did 🙂

You can download the result here. You will need Google Desktop first, you can download that here.

The Gadget displays the current readings from the Sensatronics range of network thermometers. Please let me know what you think.
