Apparently Yahoo! bought Konfabulator and has already re-launched the products as Yahoo! Widgets. Not surprisingly, many of the default installation widgets are Yahoo! Search, Weather, Finance, and Picture Frame. Now to download the software, you need to sign up for a Yahoo! ID (once again, not surprising), but there doesn’t seem to be any mention of having to pay for the product — in fact if you go to the old Konfabulator site, this is confirmed (there’s a nice little comic strip on the site as well).
