An electronic device made and marketed by the "Chunky Widget Co." in 1974, which made it easy to connnect a TV to a home stereo system to improve the audio experience. The next generation device by the same creator became the first multichannel Home Theater sound system in 1975.
I bought a Widget at Tower Records on the strip, and connected my TV and Stereo together with it. The Midnight Special concert that night sounded Awesome!.

Derived from a computer programming term, "widget" refers to a virtual object with default settings. In the context of Internet dating, a widget is a man or woman known through his or her on-line profile. A widget remains a widget even when real names have been exchanged. After several in-person meetings, a widget can be referred to by his or her actual name.
So, have you hooked up with any widgets lately?
