zi have no idea how to program anything for dashboard, and apple's article makes no sense to me, so I have an idea for someone to make.

In a car's dashboar, it shows how fast the car is moving and other information. Someone whould make a widget that looks like the dashboard icon, but instead of those iscons, have CPU usage. In the circles on the bottom, show remaining batterylife and in the other, wireless network signal strength. They could be whatever, or maybe be changable through the flipside.

I think this would be a really cool widget and hope that, unlike my last idea, someone will agree.

I agree it could look a lot more dash-like, but since that author has got starrted on itt perhaps you should pitch your ideas to them directly, provide a skettch or two. Developers love encouragement, at least I do.
