Widgets make me giddy. If only I had dual 30-inch Apple Cinema Displays, I could be perpetually happy and lost in love. Why? How?
Widgets and love. How easy is it to find love with a widget (focus; I’m serious)? It’s easy with the Dating Widget.
What’s handy about Apple Dashboard widgets is, well, they’re handy. Weather. Sports scores. UPS and FedEx status. Dictionary. Stocks.
Whooooosh with the mouse, and a whole bunch of widgets just show up on your Mac’s screen. Not only are widgets handy, and dandy, now they’re ready for a little randy.
The Dating Widget is the latest to hit Mac OS X Tiger, and it’s guaranteed to make it even easier to search online for that special someone.
Like, I’m thinking to myself, how hard can it be? Yahoo Personals are a click away. Bookmark any of the 127 matchmaking web sites online, and you’re a click away.
Fork over some cash to Dr. Neil Warren Clark Kent and eHarmony love harmony is all yours. Scientifically.
The problem is all those clicks.
The Dating Widget gets to the nitty gritty base requirement of date selection with online matchmaking services.
That’s where you start, right? Or, so I’m told.
The Dating Widget works about as you’d expect. Enter your zip code, select male looking for… or, female looking for…, add a range for years, and you’re done.
The widget whirls around and you get a photo. That’s where everyone starts, right? Or, so I’m told.
Click on the photo and a few controls appear. Click an arrow key to look at more photos. Click the magnifying glass to see matches from the web site.
Click the heart and get the profile from MetroDate.
Love is just that easy these days.
In fact, there’s even competition for your love life. The popular online dating site (so I’m told) Match.com has their own Dashboard Widget called, Match.com Connections.
Other than having to register at Match.com first, then enter a password and ID, it works about the same.
Choices are good, right? Check out the widget of choice from PartnerMine, another web site for finding a date, or true love, or a soul mate, or a pen pal, or chubby old gals looking for Brad Pitt.
It’s like having eHarmony just a click away. Wait. That’s not right.
eHarmony and every other web site for online dating IS just a click away. Sorry.
The Dashboard widgets just make love a little more accessible. So I’m told.
Just in case you’ve already scoured the internet and found the love of your love, you’re ready for something to keep the mood alive, right?
What better device to bring harmony, love, tranquility, and peace to soulmates now entering a new life of relationship building, than the good old Lava Lamp?
Surprise. There’s a lava lamp widget. What? You didn’t know?
The I Love Lamp brings the 60s back to life again (as does Viagara; so I’m told) with a Dashboard widget that gives you a lava lamp for the ages. Digitally speaking, of course.
Love is where you find it. Sometimes you have look a little longer, try checking under a few more rocks, lower your standards, or get the right Dashboard widget.
