MWSF 2007 Countdown Widget

January 1st, 2007

The Macworld San Francisco Expo (MWSF) 2007 countdown widget.

Start the new year in style by counting down to the Macworld San Francisco Expo 2007 keynote using the MWSF2007 countdown widget. (iPhone rumors sold separately.)

Update: A bunch of people have expressed interest into a generic countdown based on this. The thing is, this is based off a generic countdown – this is made with Apple’s Dashcode widget maker tool. Dashcode 1.0 is set to be released in the next major version of Mac OS X, 10.5 (“Leopard”), due this spring, but Apple has made available a Dashcode public beta (requires free developer account).

MWSF2007 Countdown is based on the standard Countdown template, but I’m releasing my Dashcode project without any strings attached whatsoever (hey, it’s Apple’s template and my chances are trivial) for those that want to start from that. (And before you ask, the widget does have “MWSF 2007″ in editable text as two text “parts” called text1 and text2. They are made invisible and overlaid by an image of the rendered text, since the Myriad font is not available out of the box on Mac OS X and I’d like the widget to look the same.)
