Yahoo! buys Konfabulator... two interesting aspects to this. Firstly, that this is a fascinating play by Yahoo to get onto the desktop, and one that Apple could well have done themselves, and significantly benefitted from. After all, iTunes works as multi-platform, so why not Dashboard? Too late now, Apple...

The other interesting aspect is that Yahoo did this in the context of moving "more onto the mac". That would be a resounding endorsement to mac users, especially if they could get a Yahoo plug-in for iSync working and beef up their OSX version of Yahoo IM.
