I went looking for a Vista Sidebar Gadget to watch election results but didn’t find any in the Live Gallery. I figured I’d just have to be “Old Fashioned” and refresh a web page so went to MSNBC (after finding CNN appeared to be melting) and found they have gadgets for all kinds of interfaces (FaceBook, MySpace, etc.) including a sidebar gadget and blog embed code. If you’re biting your nails waiting for results, you may want to go pick up one in your favorite flavor.
Edit: Removed live gadget and inserted image for posterity.
