Widgets - Brainstorming - How do you plan to use them?

I thought I'd make a general widget discussion thread, I hope this is ok :)

It's my opinion that the widget system is great and has a huge amount of potential. I keep likening it to when Wordpress went from being just a blog to being the software behind the majority of websites.

What I'm interested in is what uses people have already considered for it? It's got so much more use than just sticking a few blocks into a sidebar so I hope some developers come up with cool ways to really utilise it in their addons.
