Beside Myself with Sidebars

Since I finally updated to Vista (it's not as bad as everyone said), I've had to choose between the Vista Sidebar and Google Sidebar.  The Google Sidebar is re-sizable and integrates nicely with Google Desktop.  But the Vista Sidebar has some gadgets I just can't find for Google.  The best Google Sidebar gadget I can find for playing music is Music Player, but it doesn't seem to compare to Imp's Player for Vista.  Plus, Logitech makes some cool gadgets for Vista, but not for Google.  And for Google, I can't find just a simple digital clock with no seconds, no date (I use Google Calendar 2 for that), etc.

I know, I know... As a developer, I should just make my own gadget.  But sometimes, I just want to be a user!
