I have to admit, I’m underwhelmed by the desktop application. I have browsed through the widgets, and they’re mostly clock/weather, RSS or search thingies. Nothing I can’t have as a Firefox extension, albeit less pretty. About 98% of the day, I don’t see my desktop anyway, as I have windows open full screen.

The thought of having something like this on a mobile would rock – the screen on a mobile phone is in idle mode most of the time, and I wonder why nobody (OK – Sendo and Microsoft) have yet exploited that potential.

I’d buy an S60 app that displays stuff like the next appointments and is skinnable like Konfabulator immediately. There are apps like Active Today, but I want something integrated with the default home screen.
