Iron Man 2
We came across the official Iron Man 2 movie trailer widget today via a friend’s Facebook stream. After clicking through to view it, we felt compelled to give it a quick review.
There is so much wrong with the widget that we will only focus on the top 3 items. Let’s hope the movie itself is much better.
Interestingly enough, a quick Google search returned an official UK version of the Iron Man 2 movie trailer widget that was significantly better. Both widgets are below for comparison and reference. They are not easy to find on the official Iron Man 2 movie site.
NCAA® March Madness on Demand®
Just released today by CBSSports.com!
Here is the 2010 NCAA® March Madness on Demand® Widget. It’s pretty basic right now and there’s not much info on it. The first game doesn’t tip till 7:30 PM Eastern tonight so there’s nothing to do on the widget yet.
However, we assume that once the games start going, the widget will get updated scores and allow you to click through to the live game being streamed online at NCAA® March Madness on Demand®.
We love the tourney around here. So, if all it did was give you an easy way to browse the schedule and launch the games you want to watch, we’ll be happy.
Yes, that’s a pretty low bar to set, but hey it’s March Madness…

Our March Madness Widget for the 2009 NCAA Tournament Bracket has been updated for the 2009 Tourney. Again, it was built for personal use so it’s pretty limited. The bracket currently updates every 60 seconds so it’s a good way to keep up to date with the scores.
The current default view is the EAST Region. However, you can select from the EAST, MIDWEST, SOUTH, WEST or ELITE EIGHT brackets as the default view when you grab the widget. If you decide to change he default view later, just grab the code again and select the new view as the default.
Update (2009-12-25): Widget removed due to changes in the Clearspring Platform and lack of interest in this widget.
This widget has also been enabled as a Facebook App and Google Gadget.
Don’t forget about the free live video streams, March Madness on Demand…
