a personal grumble
Tuesday, March 21, 2006

A week ago, I released Lock-It!, a simple widget that locks an OS X computer by switching to the login window (it just calls the CGSession application). Today, I find that someone else released the equivalent widget. That's OK. It's more than likely a coincidence and certainly wasn't all that novel an idea. The thing that irks me is that Apple decided to make their widget the "featured" widget. How does that work?! (Their widget also looks nicer and they have a prettier website... grrrrr).
