Chapter 10. Dashboard > Dashboard & Widgets

Dashboard & Widgets

Dashboard, a brand new feature of Mac OS X, gives you instant access to simple applications called widgets. Widgets work with other applications such as iTunes, iCal, and Address Book to provide you with quick access to the most commonly used features. They also work with the Internet to get up-to-date information such as stock quotes, weather, and Yellow Pages listings.

Mac OS X 10.4 comes with a bunch of widgets, all accessible from the new Widget Bar that you can display at the bottom of your screen. In this chapter, I explain how to use Dashboard to display the Widget Bar and widgets and how you can use each of the widgets that come with Mac OS X.
