Now That’s a Widget!


I was tooling around on HBO’s site, looking for Sopranos stuff, when I came across the HBO dashboard widget (requires OS X 10.4.) Wow. Schedule grid, slick Quicktime integration, and loads of graphical polish. The only negative is that it takes up a fair bit of screen real estate, but it’s maybe the most impressive widget I’ve seen yet.

Thanks for that --- I've been using it for months and never noticed that. :)
