Fun & Games - JoT Coffee

Description: JoT Coffee brings you The Joy of Tech to the Dashboard. Click on Current Brew image to load the latest JoT in Safari or click on the Classic Blend image to load a random JoT in Safari. The Joy of Tech is loaded into Safari for two reasons. The first is to respect the wishes of the copyright owners. The second is that the image is too large and takes up too much Dashboard realestate.

Version: 1.3
New in v1.3: Better random function, you will not see the same sequence on install, smaller graphic files and simplified code, and Current Brew updates correctly. Uses less memory to run as well.

Seems pointless. Why would I launch Dashboard to click a bookmark? If it actually loaded the comic, that would be one thing, but as it is, it's a pretty hyperlink that is currently eating 13 MB of real RAM and 118 MB of virtual RAM on my machine.

People seem to be losing sight of what a widget is actually supposed to be. It's NOT supposed to be a very large bookmark that simply opens a web page. That's what the bookmarks themselves are actually for. The other thing it's not supposed to be is a one-trick pony search widget that only searches the Slovakian Amazon.com. In addition, a widget is supposed to be pretty looking.

No offense, but please concentrate your efforts on something useful. I can just bookmark JoT if I want to look at it.

Great widget - not good design. I always like to see when a new JoyofTech as come out and now I can - good work!

Thank you for this widget.. I disagree with the naysayers.. this is fun and functional widget, and reminds me to check the Joy of Tech site where a simple bookmark does not. I like the random feature too, nice to find JoT's I haven't seen yet. Thanks!
