    Oops, answered my own question here. I guess the widget was pulled off the Market temporarily due to a complaint by HTC. Apparently, it is being fixed and will be released soon:

    There are plenty of others that do the same thing. Try "weather forecast & clock widget" in the market. It is free.

    Beautiful widgets is more popular and probably has better themes as well. Personally, I tried it and got a refund. I really don't see the need to have a huge widget with the time and weather when the phone already has the time and I don't need to know the weather 24/7.

    i use beautiful widget+ there live wallpaper it's amazing the live wallpaper will change according to the weather outside so when it's sunny the sun will be shining, when it's cloudy there will be bunch of moving clouds across your screen

    I have "Weather & Toggle Widgets" which allows you to use different skins for the weather widget.... its not free if your DLing from the market but it looks very nice and has a ton of skins for any style your looking for... here it is on my Vibrant...

    I have this on my phone right now and love it, but unfortunately my droid's screen broke and I am getting a new one sent to me and I would hate to lose it. Does anyone have the apk file for it?

    I had that widget on my Behold II and it drained my battery due to polling and gave a sleep bug.

    Be careful, its not optimized.

    I have Weather & Toggle Widget Donate version prominently displayed on my homescreen, absolutely love this app. The animated weather is cool.

    I've used them all. I prefer Fancy Widget because it's simplistic and doesn't put a bunch of extra junk on your phone like Beautiful Widgets and Weather & Toggle Widget.

    I have the APK if you'd like it. It isn't warez since it's free to begin with. If you'd like it, just PM me and I'll upload it for ya so that HTC doesn't come bombarding androidforums. ;)

    Sure, if you have not done so already, go to the Marketplace on your phone then download and install Barcode Scanner, then start Barcode Scanner, aim your camera at QR Code below and follow the directions.
    Note: This was working yesterday. I'm not sure when or if it might be taken down.

    As robo said, go to the Market, do a search for: Barcode Scanner, download this app. Activate this app, focus the camera on the QR code robo provided above, once you hear the beep, click Open Brower. It'll take you to the market to download this Fancy Widget app.
