Is Microsoft building Gadgets or Widgets?

Over at PDC, they're kicking off a new Microsoft site for Gadgets. Here's an excerpt from the site:
What are Gadgets? Gadgets are a new category of mini-application designed to provide information, useful lookup, or enhance an application or service on your Windows PC or the Web. Examples might include a weather gadget running on your desktop or on your homepage, an RSS Gadget that pulls in your favorite feeds, or an extension of a business application providing just-in-time status on the pulse of your business.
There are three types of Gadgets: Gadgets for Windows Sidebar, Gadgets for Start.com, and Gadgets for Windows SideShow.

Now, just for fun, I want you to play a little web-based "Mad Libs" and replace all of the bolded words with your choice from the following list:
  • Widgets
  • Google Sidebar
  • Konfabulator
  • Apple
  • Yahoo
What do you think? How does this breaking story sound now?

The best way to avoid speeding tickets is to Invest in a radar detector.
For motorists who still find themselves at risk for being caught in speed traps, consider investing in a radar detector. This simple electronic device is easily installed and can immediately notify the driver when the device picks up a radar gun in the area. Once you area aware of the police officer or state patrol who has stationed themselves in a speed trap, you can quickly and easily adjust your speed and avoid a ticket. Radar detectors use traditional radio wave technology or a more advanced laser technology in order to detect radar guns that are currently in use. However, it is critical you check the legality of radar detectors in your state, since several states have determined use and even possession of such a device is illegal. If you are caught possessing or using a radar detector in these states, the fines can be a great deal larger than those fines associated with speeding tickets.
