MySpace is among the first available widgets (news).

  1. I thinks its starting to finally sink in, standards or a standard drives adoption amongst developers/designer. By making the TV widgets based on Adobe Flash and Actionscript it allows developers/designer to to utilize their skills across multiple platforms without the dreaded learning down time of a new programming language. Fully integrated web based campaigns can now be realized, from web to mobile to TV to desktop all based on Adobe Flash, Actionscript and AJAX.
