SideBar GadgetsPosted: January 21, 2007
In my previous post on Vista I remarked about the Vista SideBar and that I’ve already come to rely on a few Gadgets in my daily workings. This is the list of the Gadgets I currently have running on both my notebook and desktop:
- Outlook Appointments
- Remote Desktop
- Piano (OK this one’s just for fun!)
- Weather (Ballarat and Melbourne)
- CPU Meter
Now, this is the list of Gadgets I still want that I haven’t been able to find good enough examples of yet:
- Australian Radio
This would look a bit like this gadget and let me select from a list of Australian radio stations that stream online, and display a nice logo of the station I’m currently listening to.
- Media Player
Simple really, I just want a gadget to show me the currently playing details from Windows Media Player, including album art and maybe a pause and mute button.
- Media Center Guide
This would be a mini version of the TV guide in Media Center, showing what’s on now and some buttons to scroll up/down channels and back/forward time slots. Should also show the recording details and have buttons to quickly add a show to the recording schedule.
I might just have to roll up my sleeves and get stuck into it to make these myself.
