On Pacman’s 30th anniversary, Google featured a completely playable Pacman Google logo. I don’t think it will be around to play after today…bummer!

Have you heard of the Walmart Ice Cream widget?

January 22nd, 2010

Walmart has an Ice Cream Social widget that allows you to plan an entire party geared towards an Ice Cream Social.

You’re probably thinking “Who cares…its cold outside!” and that’s true. However, it won’t always be cold and an ice cream social can be a fun time.

The widget:

This widget offers far more functionality and usefulness than the average widget. You can search for creative, ice cream related recipes…and print them in recipe card sizes or even full page format.

Create an invitation for your guests via and start this process right in the widget.

You can see a weather forecast based on your zip code. Knowing what the weather is going to be like can make or break a party.

There is even a shopping list feature where you can create and print out your shopping requirements for the party.

The shopping list feature also offers the ability to email or SMS text a list to guests telling them to bring something to share. (Only 160 characters permitted)

Where can I put this widget? Just about anywhere…here’s the list.

This is really a feature rich widget. I would like to see more brands offer functionality such as this.

Get the Walmart Ice Cream Social widget. from gigya. Simple mp3 widget

December 22nd, 2009 allows you to create a simple, single play mp3 widget that is aimed at sharing your emotion.

We wrote about Muzicons earlier and not much has changed since then. However, this is a pretty cool way to quickly add a track to your page and I wanted to revisit it again.

Set up:
Simply go to, pick your emoticon (75 to choose from). Search for (or upload) your favorite mp3 track, pick a widget design, add a small title and pick a color.
At this point you can try out the preview, copy the code and paste it into your web site.
The hardest part is deciding which mp3 track to play.

There is even a bb-code for placing this widget into a forum!

November 23rd, 2009

The Simpsons animated television series have proven their staying power by being on air for 21 seasons. (via Wikipedia/thesimpsons)

Today there is a Bart Simpson clock available at

As you can see, it is an analog style clock with an image of Bart Simpson on a skateboard. The widget is a bit busy with the flashing background. But it seems right on par for the character involved.

Widgepedia supplies both a script based embed and a Flash based embed, so you should have no issues placing this wherever you desire. they even have a user friendly MySpace placement soulution.

Grab the Bart Simpson Clock from Widgepedia today!
