Brent Simmons wrote a great post documenting his exploration of NewsGator’s widget service. I am super impressed with the widgets that he created right out of the gate, cool stuff.
NewsGator’s widgets business hasn’t overlapped with NetNewsWire, but I felt like learning more about it. (I take it as self-evident that it’s good to be curious about your own company’s products.)

This is bullshit, how exactly is VistaPrint justifying a “fuel surcharge” when they are shipping my order via USPS? If Robert Keane, VistaPrint’s CEO, gets in his car to drive my stupid little order over, then he can charge me for fuel but until then this is an egregious and unwarranted tax on every order that is the equivalent of price gouging.
I should be able to charge them a surcharge for wasting 10 minutes of my time running the “special offer” gauntlet that you have to go through to complete a simple order.
