Call it a cynical plot to get Flash onto your desktop if you like, but Macromedia Central is actually quite interesting.
It lets you install mini Flash applications and have them run on your desktop whether you're connected to the Internet or not.
Applications available for free in Central 1.5 at the moment include a blog reader, an astrology clock, and a couple of games. US users can install weather and cinema times applications.
Central isn't much at the moment, but what it could turn out to be is very intriguing.
Visit the Central website to try it out.
