something i came across when playing with google, wordpress and pageflakes is bitty browser. a “picture within a picture for the web”.
it works with mobile phones and small web foot-prints, but can also be used to embed the info in a web site, wordpress template page/sidebar or portal. the obvious help this provides is that as you create a “home page” with loads of info, you can quickly and easily put data at your fingertips.
if you are looking at pageflakes, wordpress, google or other portal-type home pages, check out bitty.com.
