Reading Up on Widget day

After seeing my colleague Ian Pringles post on Widget day I came across this one, one section I really liked (obvious to those that know me) is this:

“Why the word widget? Where did that come from? When I was at Apple, we used the term widget to talk about controls in windows, in an operating system. It’s also the ball of nitrogen that makes Guinness drinkable.”
