It would also be nice if the widget would, when selecting an object, to automatically adjust the length of text to the bottom. When you scroll down, it will disappear the information.

It would be REALLY nice if the widget would remember to stay a specific size each time it is launched. Having to re-size it out is a pain...

Better than having to visit the Apple Store via your web browser, but it could be better. For example, yesterday I was checking for iPod Touch. The widget showed the 8 GB (current gen) model at $149, but when you clicked on it, the page on the Apple Store said "out of stock". Second, when you hover over an item and it expands into a more detailed description, if the expanded text is taller than the widget's window, there's no way to scroll down. Third, when you switch out and back to the Dashboard, it auto-scrolls to the top, which isn't useful because I keep having to scroll back down from iPod nano to iPod Touch.

I echo the other commenter who said it would be more useful if you could filter by a particular model (or filter out models you're not interested in).

Great widget, made it possile for me to find a Mac Pro the second it came to the store. Normally those are gone within like 2 hours.

A usability hint for the author: it would be great to be able to set a »minimal price« or filter by model. also. Means: when searching for a Mac Pro I am not interested in the 100 iMacs or Mac minis, I always have to scroll down to my kind of product.

Nice looking widget, unfortunately it doesn't seem to work for Canada. It just keeps spinning trying to connect?

Minor graphical problems (bottom is a pixel off). No way to manually refresh or have it auto-refresh when dashboard is opened. No way to show a particular category of items (for instance, the ever-popular Mac Mini).

Nice first effort, but very incomplete.

There should be a way to minimize the widget. It is kinda big except when you go to iphone tab. Maybe you could implement it where when you click on the "refurb" logo then it would make it smaller then click it again to go back or you could just click the tab you want. Just my thoughts.

Good Widget though!!!!!!
