Widgets I Made One Time

I came across these screen grabs (edited for privacy) of some Yahoo Widget Engine Widgets (similar to Windows Desktop Gadgets), I built in ~2008. 

  • The ‘What’s On…’, clapper board could choose cinema locations to pull film listings from. 
  • Statuslook’, could pull my Facebook activity RSS feed. Yes, Fb had RSS once.
  • I think the VHS cassette was supposed to chose a random film to watch.

I used to mess around with Yahoo Pipes too but only the basics of what it could do, to filter and combine some feeds.
