While you may only account for about 10 percent of our site’s visitors, we love you no less than your Windows (and Linux!) counterparts. And to show you our gratitude, we’ve released the Grist Dashboard widget, which will deliver Daily Grist headlines directly to your desktop.
What is a Dashboard widget exactly? I’ll let Apple explain:
Dashboard is home to widgets: mini-applications that let you perform common tasks and provide you with fast access to information. With a single click, Dashboard appears, complete with widgets that bring you a world of information — real-time weather, stock tickers, flight information, and more — instantly. Dashboard disappears just as easily, so you can get back to what you were doing.
Please note that the widget will only work for Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) users.
If you do download our widget, please let us know what you think in comments. And feel free to share ideas for other widget applications, like a climate tracker.
Thanks to Advenio LLC who was instrumental in the development of our widget.
