< A href="http://www.apple.com">Apple has announced a Dashboard Widget Contest with a 40GB iPod as a prize. The contest is open to members of the Apple Developer Connection, the companyis developer program, and runs from December 9th to January 5th.
Dashboard is one of the flagship features of Mac OS X 10.4, Tiger, which is expected to be released early in 2005. The software allows users run small, dedicated applications, or widgets, and is similar to the functionality provided by Konfabulator. From Apple:
