I hate the word widgets. It reminds me of midgets, little wooden midgets. And I fucking hate midgets. And midgets made of wood, flammable midgets. The worst possible kind.
Widgets are supposedly useful things for your computer or website or whatever. I use a Mac and there’s this thing called the ‘Dashboard’ which you can activate at the press of a key. You can download all kinds of widgets, like Flight Times Widget, Wikipedia Widget, Weather Widget and hundreds more.
Once you’re in the ‘widget environment’ though you can’t do anything on your normal desktop which is, no matter how you want to dress it up, a bit shit.
Personally, I have used a useful bit of freeware to disable my Widgets Dashboard as otherwise they just hog RAM.
When I upgraded to Wordpress someone mentioned there were widgets I could use. So fucking what? What do they do? Do they make me a cup of tea while I’m writing my post? If not then I don’t fucking want to know.
Let’s face it, widgets are the equivalent of going to use an outhouse when you have a perfectly good toilet upstairs. They’re like hoovering your house with a dustbuster when you’ve got a Dyson under the stairs.
Just stop wasting your time making widgets and make me a fucking drink instead.
Bad Apple, naughty Apple!
