Is anyone using any neat Vista gadgets?

I love Microsoft's new Vista. One of the great things is the gadgets on the desktop.
I have my France photos recirculating in one although I have had to take out the food pictures as I was getting terribly hungry all the time.
In another I have the Paris weather with an extended forecast from WeatherBug.
BonjourParis is in my RSS feeds.
Anyone found any neat ones - particularly travel related?

I have been using the pre release testing version for about 6 months, but cannot say that I think it is worth the cost of upgrading. Nearly everything you have mentioned is available in similar forms on other versions of Windows.

I rotate my holiday snaps as wallpapers, but could easily do sop in a frame using a Yahoo widget. I use a similar desktop widgets to see weather in several places (currently my home town as well as Florence and Cape Town). I use "Sage" as an RSS bar on the edge of Firefox.

I'm not anti microsoft or Vista, but will only think of witching when the initial bugs have been removed, and possibly the price drops a little.

Not really. I have Mac, and to be honest, a lot of those gadgets are a bit ho-hum because we've had some of them for a while on the Mac OX widgets.

I've got the 2 time zones - home and Paris, and the weather report as well. My screen saver is all about Paris too!

LOL, Robjame. Now, you can get an Intel Mac, and run Parallels so you can plug in more than just the 2 programs.
