Geek Patrol Interview with Arlo Rose

Arlo Rose:

People keep bringing up Desk Accessories. Desk Accessories were just mini applications accessed via the apple menu. The idea behind K is not so much about the basic Widgets as it is about empowering people to easily create their own and this is the key part that Dashboard duplicates.

So, by this logic, it’s OK for Apple to provide an API for desk accessory-like things, but it’s not OK for them to be easy to develop.
