Yahoo Buys Konfabulator

Yahoo bought the 3 person widget company Konfabulator, AP reports. From the Konfabulator homepage:

Are you going to change the name?

Yes, to Yahooulator! and Yidgets.

Okay, maybe not.

Actually, the overall platform is now “Yahoo! Widgets”. The core engine is still Konfabulator, and will remain that for a while, but don’t be too surprised if that’s slowly transitioned out. I know, we all love the name, but how do you tell your grandma “Go download Konfabulator!” and have her know what on earth you’re talking about?"”

See the new Yahoo! Widgets site for more.
