    None of my widgets really stand out, but combined, I have useful information at the click of a button.

    weather - what should I wear today?
    stocks - how did the stock market do today?
    sysstat - how is my computer doing today?
    stickies - what do I need to do today?
    flip clock - what time is it?
    blue and black itunes controller - quick access to change song

    in my opinion, there are a ton more usefull widgets for laptops than desktops.

    dictionary - really like this one, i like to look up new words a lot and using the widget is way faster than opening a new window and mistyping dictionary.com three times before i get it right.

    word of the day - i play scrabble occasionally with friends and hope this will make me learn new words

    calendar - faster than clicking on date/time

    sticky - for random notes

    weather - cause i like when it rains and can look foward to it.

    Right now it's the AlbumArt widget. Basicly it looks up a few different sites for art & then gives you the option to add the art to one song or the whole album.

    if i were yuo, i'd look into the better features of tigher (NOT wigets): spotlight (apple + spacebar) and expose

    the rest you probably wont use :o

    You will like them for all of 20 minutes, then you will wish you could get rid of dashboard all together.
