Application Interfaces - locket

Description: locket is a Dashboard widget that provides an ambient monitor for a single iChat user on your buddy list. When the person is available, the locket opens. Otherwise, it is closed. Clicking on the open locket will start a new IM chat.

Sample lockets are free to try; locket is sold customized by the developer with your image, starting at $10.

A generic public domain version is available at the developer website. Sample shown with Joan Crawford (public domain image)

OK, this is an interesting idea... but you can set iChat to make a noise or something when a buddy becomes available for free. I'm not sure why you'd pay 10 bucks to have a little picture-thing that you have to activate Dashboard to check, which is just as easy as tab-switching to iChat, and less convenient than setting an auto-alert. This seems more like an encumbrance than a helper.

Decent idea, but trying to get people to pay you $10 to put their image in is stupid.

I'll do it for free. Yeah- All you have to do is perform a 10 second edit on an image file in Photoshop.
