Twitter WordPress Widget stopped working

With all the changes and problems over on the Twitter. One impact has been that the Twitter WordPress Widget has stopped working.

Instead of the stream of tweets, you get the impression from the error message that I don’t use twitter.

Though I don’t use the widget on this site, I do use it on other sites.

Thinking now, do I remove the widget, leave it, or what.

I guess what is key, am I still using the Twitter?

Tethering Widget

Even though I have been using my Google Nexus One for tethering (portable wifi hotspot) for a while now, one of the annoyances was having to go into the menu structure to turn it on.

Menu -> Settings -> Wireless -> Portable Hotspot -> Turn it on….

There didn’t seem to be a quick way to add menu items to the screen. You couldn’t add it as a shortcut either.

After doing some of the Google stuff, I found that there was a free widget I could download that would then give me a widget on the home screen to turn the portable wifi hotspot on and off with a single click. Result!
