    Apple has announced two winners – Send SMS by Alco Blom and WikityWidget by Michael Robinette – in its recent Dashboard Widget developers contest.

    Send SMS by Alco Blom provides the ability to send a message on the spur of the moment to someone without having to launch the Address Book application. Send SMS combines the instantly available Tiger Dashboard with Short Message Service, or SMS. SMS is a text message service that enables short messages of generally no more than 140-160 characters in length to be sent and transmitted from a cellphone.

    WikityWidget by Michael Robinette is a personal notepad with automatic linking. Using a simple notebook-style interface, WikityWidget lets you easily jot down and organize notes with hypertext links so they're easy to find and instantly available via the Mac OS X Tiger Dashboard. It applies Wiki technology in a new and interesting way on the Mac and demonstrates the powerful potential of Widgets to leverage technologies in Tiger.

    When Apple announced the Dashboard Widget Contest, which was open to Apple Developer Connection members, it had said the winner would receive a 40 GB iPod. The entry deadline for the contest was November 30, 2004.

    the SMS goes over teh intraweb and is sent to your phone like any other SMS or text message. bluetooth plays no part.

    I know archive and install works, but I don't trust it.

    I just hope that Quicksilver is read to go with Tiger compatibility.

    even archive and install leaves some skeletons, I've come to find :hs: if you have the space to do it, complete backup and fresh install owns.
