Desktop Widgets

John Musser, October 17th, 2005

Yahoo Music One of the things I haven’t added to the API database has been what might be classified as Desktop Widgets or other client-dependent APIs. Examples of these include:

Most use online data but they require an OS-specific desktop install as opposed to being pure web-based platforms. Safe to say this hybrid blurring of offline/online applications will only grow. Suggestions on the best way to classify these are welcome. Likely to be added to database along with new attribute(s) noting client and OS dependencies.

I’m also writing to make you be aware of of the perfect discovery my girl found checking yuor web blog. She came to understand numerous issues, which include what it is like to possess a wonderful teaching character to have many more with no trouble know precisely several tricky topics. You really did more than people’s expectations. Many thanks for producing the great, healthy, revealing and as well as cool thoughts on your topic to Gloria.
