At the weekend I switched on my PC, fired up Outlook 2010 and was presented with this splash screen on which the program informed me it was “Contacting: \\change-production.s3.amazonaws.com\photos\6\iw\yd…”

One of my favourite Windows 7 gadgets is the Outlook Appointments gadget. As gadgets go it’s pretty simple: it shows me upcoming appointments. From Outlook.

The same hack also works for the “Outlook Tasks” gadget.
It looks like someone has released pre-hacked versions of Appointments and Tasks called iOutlook which work with Outlook 2010. The iOutlook Appointments one now offers 3, 5 or 10 appointments.
