Keeping up to date is a big deal. Fortunately, theres a heap of free software to help you stay in the know and stay on the bleeding edge. This week we’re looking at a couple must have widgets that will help keep you informed as well as a couple spanking new updates of major applications.
For those of you who don’t know, Woot! is one insanely great deal a day. These deals are often so good they sell out in a matter of hours. Of course, with the Woot! Widget you’ll be able to see the daily deals right on your Dashboard.
There are plenty of great RSS news readers out there. This one’s great because it brings your feeds to your Dashboard as a widget. The slick interface organizes your feeds and stories for quick access.
Here we’ve got an update for everybody. For the security conscious, there’s the newest security update for Firefox. For those who like to live dangerously, there’s the new Deer Park Alpha 2, the second development release of what will be Firefox 1.1. New in Alpha 2: migrate your Safari profile and try out the new shell service.
Talk about an old favorite. Grab the beta of the new Flash player and see if the speed improvements they’re talking about are real.
With our crazy friends busting open comets, you never know what they might be up to at NASA. They may be shooting off that shuttle any minute now. Keep your eye on the happenings with this widget. Chose from NASA TV, Kennedy Space Center video and launch pads.
There you are, hooked up with the newest of the new and sure to be there when the next something big drops. See you next week…
