FEEDBACK:

I have just installed v2.0 of TechDictionary. I would like to compliment you on the comprehensiveness, lack of typos and the fact that I can now access it without launching my browser. Keep up the good work.

At last you made it iPhone compatible. Thanks it's awesome.

Great widget. Most useful for me are the telecom terms.

I use the website or widget at home and the iPhone app at school with my cellphone, it's a good resource for my classes.

To place a widget on your desktop (in the Finder):
If you’d rather see a widget all the time—not just when you switch to Dashboard—you can move the widget to Tiger’s Finder layer, so it appears on the desktop. Launch Terminal (/Applications/Utilities); then type defaults write com.apple.dashboard devmode YES . Log out and then log back in, and you’ll be able to pull as many widgets into the Finder layer as you like. While dragging the widget from the Widget bar, press F12 to close Dashboard. When you release the mouse, the widget will appear on the desktop. (from Macworld.com)
