What is your opinion on the use of widgets?
There are literally hundreds of these add-ons we can install and use on our computers to make our lives “easier.” Most are free and can be used by anyone. With so many to choose from can you have too many? Most likely yes. When do they stop being useful and merely become an annoyance?
My kids have widgets on their Myspace pages. Music, photos, countdowns, the list goes on. These widgets help them to “personalize” their small slice of cyberspace.
Do the widgets you have make your life easier? Is it worth it to have content “conveniently” delivered directly to your desktop, or are we making ourselves too accessible to potential hackers?
