Google Gadget for Vino2Vino

One of the cool things about Web 2.0 (and Wine 2.0) is that technology is emerging which let's you extend a targeted community, like wine lovers, out to other sites and communities. Last month, I blogged about our V2V wine review widget on Widgetbox. The wine widget is cool because you can create a widget to represent different types and kinds of wine. But, it can only be used on sites or blogs where you have authoring privileges.

This week, we released a new version of the widget as a Google Gadget. (more from Mike) This gadget allows you to put a special kind of widget on your Google home page that automatically shows you wines that are being updated on vino2vino.com. It's like a visual RSS feed. Every time you hit your Google home page, you'll see an updated graphic of wines that have recently been reviewed on Vino2Vino. And, it's dead simple to add the gadget to your home page. Click on the graphic above, or here to add it to your personalized Google home page (Google login required).
