Looks cool, but I'm a gamer and I don't like to have stuffing eating up my ram. I definately think it saves you the hassle of surfing the web for that stuff. I might get some though because they look useful for when I'm playing games for a long time, or I just wake up and don't know what day it is!!

I found the widgets to be a waste of memory, so I don't use them.
