AOL Tests Vista Gadget

Windows Vista has the ability for content owners and marketers to build desktop widgets to make their platforms more accessible

Windows Vista has the ability for content owners and marketers to build desktop widgets to make their platforms more accessible. AOL just released its early version of the AOL Social Mail Gadget at dev.aol.com/mail. The widget gives users one-click, desktop access to e-mail, AIM, photos and video. The top five contacts float to the top so users can immediately message their friends and family.

The widget give AOL desktop visibility to all users. It won’t immediately run advertising, but it’s not out of the question. “As part of AOL’s audience and monetization growth strategy, we are going to look at optimized monetization opportunities surrounding the gadget,” said an AOL spokesperson.
