Amazon Search Dashboard Widget for Tiger

Update: Dashboard Widgets are no longer a feature of Mac OS, so this is just a historical record of what it was.

I have had Mac OSX 10.4 Tiger for 3 days, and I have already released my first Dashboard Widget called Dash Shopper - Amazon Product Search Dashboard Widget.

The widget supports multiple locales US, UK, Canada, Germany, France, and Japan. I even translated the app into German, and French (thanks TJ). Sorry, no japanese translation yet, but the product listings are in japanese.

This is just the 1.0, there is a lot more I can do, but I just wanted to get a basic version out there. Let me know what you think.

The Amazon web services blog has posted something about it this morning before I had a chance to post it on my own blog, thanks!
