TheSpringBox: Widget engine for desktop and web

The Spring Box is a widget engine for the web and for the desktop that is just plain sprung (sorry, I grew up near Chicago, so I still know a little street slang). The product is in beta, so you know it is cool like all the other roller-shoe wearing kids, but this also means there are not a lot of widgets available for consumption just yet. There is an API for developers that you can use...
