Zoho Gadgets Target, iGoogle, Facebook, Orkut,Gmail etc.

What’s the biggest threat to cloud computing at the moment? Most of us might answer with something like cost, lack of stability or sluggishness. Zoho doesn’t think this way, though. It seems that for Zoho’s services the biggest issue is user laziness or forgetfulness.

Zoho has announced its new Zoho Gadgets. Zoho Gadgets are embedded into different websites, with support for iGoogle, Facebook, Orkut, or any other website with OpenSocial. The gadgets can also be pasted into other websites with the HTML code. These gadgets act like most other gadgets in iGoogle. They show a list of your Zoho Inbox, Docs documents, Calendar, etc. When you click on any of the items in the Zoho Gadget, it opens a new window or tab with that item in it.

All the gadgets are OpenSocial compatible – this means you can now use these gadgets in any OpenSocial compatible social network. We plan to provide gadgets for other Zoho Applications moving forward.

These gadgets can be embedded individually in any websites or can be added to iGoogle or any personal dashboard.
To start with, they are offering six Zoho gadgets.
