Create a Win7 Gadget | Experts Exchange

Joaquina Erdmann

This article shows you how to create a simple “Gadget” — a sort of mini-application supported by Windows 7 and Vista.  Gadgets can be dropped anywhere on the desktop to provide instant information, or to act as a gateway to a website or a larger program.  

What I like about gadgets is that they are really just small HTML pages.  That means:  No big-project development overhead.  If you have Notepad.exe and some knowledge about HTML, then you can write your own gadget.  Like HTAs, they run with with full local-program privileges, and can use ActiveX objects.  There is no limit to the creative things you can do with gadgets.Fig. 1-1:  Win7 gadgets!

The TickTime is a clever productivity gadget that just works

Joaquina Erdmann

With so much of the world’s workforce shifting to remote labor, a whole lot of people are trying to figure out how to be productive at home for the first time. Well, I’ve been working from home for years, and I still haven’t totally figured out the puzzle. There are no shortage of apps designed to help you be more productive, but I’m not sure anything I’ve tried has had as much potential as a little gadget called the TickTime.

The concept is simple but clever. If you’ve ever heard of the Pomodoro method, which asks you to work in roughly 25-minute intervals with a short (say, five minutes) break in between, the TickTime is essentially that in physical form.

The device is shaped like a long hexagon, and each side corresponds to a different timer: 3, 5, 10, 15, 25, or 30 minutes. Lay the timer down such that

Joaquina Erdmann

Back Market has raised a $120 million round of venture capital as it seeks to dramatically expand the market for refurbished consumer electronics. The investment round included Goldman Sachs, Aglaé Ventures, Eurazeo Growth, and Daphni and follows rounds of $48 million in 2018 and $7 million in 2017.

The Paris-based startup has created a marketplace to connect companies that restore used gadgets with consumers through a one-stop shopping experience, complete with warranties and customer service. While the company has seen meteoric growth, particularly since its expansion to the U.S., overall sales of used gadgets remain small compared to those of brand-new devices.

Cofounder and CEO Thibaud Hug de Larauze said the company’s long-term goal is to make refurbished devices the majority of consumer purchases. This feeds into its ambition of promoting the circular economy and reducing the tech industry’s impact on the environment.

“We are a mission-driven company,” said Hug
