Widgets

Web gadgets, or widgets, are little features people can post anywhere online. People can "grab" them and post them on their own sites, or blogs, or whatever.

One such widget was posted with last week's Associated Press review of "Indiana Jones."




Another one, posted below, will accompany a detailed Sunday Associated Press story about the popular British band Radiohead.




There are many companies that make Widgets, including Clearspring and Widgetbox.

The really cool thing about these Web features is that can be updated all the that -- and you can make your own.

I did, not to show you that it can be done, but in an humble attempt at shameless self-promotion, as you can see to your right.

Now there are countless places on the Web for you to ignore me.
