Check out what hubs made with our spare (almost busted) laptop - a live updating photo frame/display for our living room! It tells time, date, weather, traffic with live updates, and rotates photos from our Flickr feed. He was quite dissapointed when I wasn't floored when I saw it, but hey see I am, I am blogging about it!
Anyway the desktop uses Konfabulator (some new software don't ask me to explain, I can't) and pulls in info from different websites (wait correction, he says it's widgets... butwhatever). I really think we should sell this to Neiman Marcus to display alongside LV trunks, and private jets, in their ostentatious christmas catalog. :)
