Yourminis gives you a page that you can modify with your own mix of widgets--RSS feeds, Flickr images, video feeds, weather and time blocks, and so on. The widgets and the Yourminis container page are all in Flash, and the widgets are very pretty to look at and easy to move around on the page. You can also do things with them--such as rotate them arbitrarily, for a scrapbook effect--that you can't do on Ajax start pages.
Yourminis recently rolled out a technology using Adobe's Apollo framework that lets users take the widgets out of their browsers and put them on their desktops.
