I got an email telling me about Kaiser Permanente's new widgets. went to the page and thought, cool! A yoga widget. A fitness widget. A brain tease widget. That's neat, and I was all set to add one or two to this blog's sidebar.
Why do I have to download and install a separate application to run these widgets?The widgets are like small power tools. The Yahoo! Widgets program is like the electricity that makes all the different power tools work. Installing the Yahoo! Widgets program is like wiring your computer with electricity. As soon as that installation is complete, you can download and start using widgets immediately.
