If there was ever a program that could not be recommended
more it would be Yahoo Widgets

For those of you already enjoying this program and have been
longing to find an easy, convenient way to listen to XM on your
computer, a widget is finally available!

If you are already an XM subscriber, you need only to visit XM
by clicking here to register and enjoy a FREE online subscription
that will be supported by the XM widget mentioned above.

This widget is especially great for anyone with a laptop who travels
often and likes to hear XM while on the road (with an available
Internet connection).

How do you think it compares to the XAMP application?

This sounds just like the XAMP application. The only benefit is not timing out which XAMP has taken care of. Or am I missing something.

The XAMP software is very interesting. Never heard of
it before until just now. Certainly a step up from the widget. Thanks
for mentioning this.

Dave,

Yahoo widgets is a terrific piece of software that once installed,
lets you pick amongst hundreds of modules or "widgets" that provide
all sorts of information (weather, stocks, traffic cams, computer utils)
and entertainment (games, radio players, sports scores) for your
desktop.

The great thing about this program is that you can load your desktop
with these widgets and it uses up very little system memory.

The XM WIDGET is certainly a nice addition to the widget family,
but I must admit, I am very impressed with the XAMP as well.

Thanks again, guys.
