Google Desktop Gadget winners announced

Day/Night World Clock for Google DesktopBack in July I posted about the Google Desktop Gadget Designer and a contest sponsored by Google for makers of gadgets, a.k.a. widgets. Yesterday, at long last, Google announced the contest's winners. The supreme ultimate winners, who will take home $5,000, are Marius and Yannick Stucki, who created diGGGadget, which is of course for keeping track of Digg. Second place went to Turhan Aydin for Multiplayer Reversi Game, and third went to Day/Night World Clock by Beatrix Gottanka, which is my personal favorite. Aydin and Gottanka will get $2,000 and $1,000, respectively. The announcement also identifies some runners-up that are worth a look.
