Yahoo! Buys Konfabulator

The deal, finalized late last week for an undisclosed price, gives Yahoo access to a toolbox of mini-applications – known as widgets – that have built a cult following since Palo Alto-based Konfabulator first introduced them for Apple Computer Inc.’s Macintosh in 2002.

To celebrate the purchase, it looks like Konfabulator 2.1 is now a free download! Go ahead and grab yo’self a copy! It’s super keen!
