While the term Gigawidget has been around for years, nobody has ever taken the time to explain what one is exactly. This page will attempt to clarify the myths surrounding widgets and specifically the remotely prolific gigawidget.

Because somebody has to be the first to define a word, I've taken it upon myself to do so. Rightfully so, as I made it up. So, here it goes...GigaWidget is a term sometimes used to describe an object that is fictitious. The term is also used for obfuscation, if the objects real make-up or composition is unknown. The word is generally applied to technology, or the implementation of technology, making it truely unique.

The Etymology of GigaWidget is somewhat contentious. Widget is not explained in most dictionaries. The origin came from a 1924 play "Beggar on Horseback", by George Kaufman and Mark Connelly.

Although the term Widget is used in many different applications, the term Gigawidget was first applied by GWI, a subsidiary of the WWW association.

GWI worked to develop the Gigawidget based on their need to improve the general lifestyle and standard of living for it's employees, pursuant to, the inevitable subsequent additional benifits of increased productivity in the work-place. As one of the first RSS Widget projects, the team quickly realized RSS had interesting marketing capabilities.

As the product was developed, it became obvious that other applications were possible. Byron Calle, of WWW working group, discovered that once the output was doubled, the subsequent heat generated could be used to keep the subject warmer by diverting the flow. This had additional benefits of cooling the rotating heads in the upper and sub axis of the PFM circuits. This was especially important as they are made of Unobtanium and cannot be replenished cost effectively today.
