and this is exactly what Yahoo is doing by buying Konfabulator.
by offering your visitors another tool, you seperate yourself from the competition
I don't think Yahoo will limit the types of widgets that can be created for Konfabulator although I am sure that right now Yahoo is hard at work making the slickest, most useful widgets for movie, news, maps, etc., that will make all other similar widgets moot.
The only problem I see is that Yahoo hates sites that compete with it so any widgets that offer things such as travel, music etc, may not be allowed on the new Yahoobulator
