One of the “new” features Apple is introducing in Tiger is “Dashboard”|http://www.apple.com/macosx/tiger/dashboard.html. Dashboard allows the user to display “widgets” on their screen, which contain information like weather reports, stock quotes, the current time, the current track in iTunes, etc. Sounds good, right?
Well, in case you haven’t noticed, Dashboard is, shall we say, remarkably similar to an existing product: Konfabulator|http://www.konfabulator.com/. The Konfabullator makers have noticed this, and have posted their feelings in their blog|http://www2.konfabulator.com/journal/index.php?start=68&show=1.
Well, I suppose not everyone can have their greatest ideas come to them as if in a dream.
