    What are some cool Widgets everyone has? Are there other places besides the Apple website to get them? Do any that are more "adult" oriented exist?

    dictionary/thesaurus - I use it every day - by far the most useful widget

    weather - used quite often

    calculator - comes in handy when I want to do a quick bit of math

    I stopped using Dashboard. Its a cool idea but I always found myself needing more info so I'd end up going to the website anyway.
