Widget Convergence: Web-to-Desktop

The guys at Goowy and yourminis blog that you can now put your widgets on your desktop, all thanks to Adobe Apollo. I tried it and it’s pretty neat, despite the fact that it is alpha tech running on alpha tech.

I’m excited to see a broader migration of Web content to the desktop, blurring the divide between hosting containers (desktop, browser, Flash runtime, etc.). If we can do that, then there is also the hope that getting widgets on mobile devices will become easier.
