Gadgets, Gadgets, get your Gadgets here….

So you have probably heard about Live gadgets and if you have been playing with Vista you will have see the SideBar Gadgets but what you may not have seen are SideShow gadgets.  What’s a SideShow, well it is the small display on the outside (typically) of a laptop that could show things like the time or information about the song that is currently playing.  It is very similar to the reduced display that some mobile phones have on the outside.  Well the great news is that it is going to be possible to build gadgets for the SideShow.  Without steeling his thunder I suggest you check out Daniel Moth’s blog and the the SideShow blog for more information.  If you are interested, you should also keep tabs on the new .NET Micro Framework.
