What do you think of widgets?

People often ask me what I think of Widgets/Gadgets. Here is my answer:

Is that Attention Management?


It might not be as fancy and graphical - but I would argue it is far more useful.

Widgets are ok for interactive elements. But if you want to track information over time (e.g. RSS news, packages, auctions, stock prices, application alerts etc) then you need a more intelligent approach.
