Hypercube Beta Brings Unified Widget Management to the Desktop
New York City (WidgetWebExpo) — June 16, 2008 — Mesa Dynamics announced
today the beta release of Amnesty Hypercube, the company’s desktop widget
platform designed to release Google Gadgets and other web widgets (such as
Flash games and video) from the confines of the browser. The beta release
for OS X features a new multi-panel widget management interface reminiscent
of Apple’s iTunes application.
A web widget is a mini-application, often deployed as an HTML code snippet,
intended for insertion into blogs, homepages and social networking profile
pages. In the beta version of Amnesty Hypercube, web widgets are managed
alongside desktop widgets, can be launched on the desktop, installed into
Apple’s Dashboard, or moved in and out of a number of social networks,
including MySpace and Facebook via drag- and-drop.
Amnesty Hypercube also features a unique Publisher Directory with 175
bookmarks to companies and services that offer web widgets. Publisher sites
can be explored via an inline WebKit browser with new widgets added to
Amnesty Hypercube via copy-and-paste.
The beta of Amnesty Hypercube for OS X is immediately available for
download at http://www.amnestyhypercube.com and requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or
