Now I'm no fan of vista, but I do like the news gadget on the sidebar in Vista. Is there a dashboard widget that that replicates it or has a similar function?

If you use OS X's webclip widget and you can have any website's "latest news" on Dashboard.

Problem is, I'm running tiger and I don't want a website's rss feeds in my dash.

I just want a good-looking widget that will provide me with news and will update itself every few minutes

Have you had a browse through the widgets at apple.com - Apple - Downloads - Dashboard (http://www.apple.com/downloads/dashboard/) ?

There are things like a BBC widget and breaking news for CNN and NY Times. I have never seen Vista so I don't know if these are similar in functionality to the news gadget you mentioned.

cheers.

Yes I have browsed the widgets on the apple website but I have yet to find a widget that suits my needs
