Stay Up-To-Date With NBC Olympic Widgets

Here are some great widgets to keep you up-to-date on the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. Below are a couple of examples with a few more available from the NBC Olympics website.

While it’s nice to have different widgets to accommodate different users and websites, we would have liked to see a single widget that could deliver the content of all 7 widgets combined. User interface is always a difficult thing to deal with due to the limited size of widgets. However, in this case the NBC Olympic widgets are a decent size and there are already several rows of controls. A left/right scrolling menu system could have easily added the functionality to provide more content.

And, in case you didn’t know, NBCOlympics.com is also streaming live video of events online for free. So, don’t miss out…

BTW, we thought that we would mention these widgets are powered by Clearspring. This seems to be pretty common these days. Great job to Hooman and the gang over there.

    Thanks for the love my man. The NBC folks have done a great job. Hopefully they will let us release some stats on their widgets soon!

    Cool Widgets!
    I found one at Clearspring too!
    This widget can display both total medal count and gold medal count.
    In addition it shows medals won per million inhabitants or per million $ GDP.
    It makes you wonder: who is (really) winning the 2008 Olympics?

    Check it out:-)
