Unleashing Tiger

While on the subject of Apple, I finally installed Apple’s new OS, Tiger yesterday which includes a powerful new search function, called Spotlight, and its much-vaunted Dashboard with Widgets. Widgets are small applications, such as a calculator or stickies, which can easily be accessed using the function keys.

Apple’s site claims to have over 1,000 Widgets to try out. So far I’ve found the best for PR folks to be the standard ones of World Clock, which helps you coordinate international programs, and Unit Converter, for calculating currency exchanges and costing PR programs. I see that lots of blog sites have their own dedicated Widgets as well.

Has anyone found any good communications-related Widgets? Must be some useful ones out there.
