Yahoo just bought Konfabulator, a program that lets you run tiny applications on your desktop. They include beautiful little calendars, clocks and icons, and also traffic cameras, gas price monitors and a "Quagmire" phrase generator from "Family Guy." This is all free and as far as I can tell doesn't have any spyware or other associated bad karma. The programs are tiny. You can even create widgets of your own, so there are thousands that people have subimtted to pick from. I really like this a lot.
