Anyone ever notice how much memory dashboard apps on OS X use? I barely even use the dashboard as it is. I was shocked to see majority of the apps I had running were taking 30 or so megs of real memory. Now I'm all for cool lookings apps, but these are freakin memory hogs! After killing all the apps that I never used, the activity monitor showed 126 MB free! Wow! Now I have two apps that I use a lot. The calender app, and weather app. Come to think of it, I dont need the calender app either, since I use iCal.
