Well, my "Laundry Care" widget didn't go over so well, but I'm back with a few new ideas...

*************************************
Sunrise/Sunset - I had to look up the sunset for a city yesterday and stumbled upon this interesting website:
http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/

It has information about various cities, including the times of sunrises and sunsets. Here's an example for New York:

City Page: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/city.html?n=179

Sun Page: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/astronomy.html?n=179

Each city has a code which can be obtained from the master list (first link).

*************************************
Area Code lookup - Type in a 3 digit area code and it displays the areas associated with the code.

The best list I found was:
http://www.melissadata.com/Lookups/zipcityphone.asp

This also displays the cities associated with the area code.

Or this page:
http://www.melissadata.com/Lookups/phonelocation.asp

Which pulls up specific information about the number entered including the city, and county.

They allow a certain number of free lookups, then you can register for an account which allows you more lookups. Not sure how they could be used with a widget.

That site has a number of other neat lookup tools which would make great widgets.

Another site is WhitePages.com:
http://www.whitepages.com/1014/log_click/search/Reverse_Areacode?npa_zip=914

I'll be back with more idea...
