From the Chatroom, older versions of the Google Contacts API were killed in early April. So that’s probably why the widgets stopped working and it’s probably a precursor to Google killing iGoogle altogether. Leo couldn't find any official Google contacts widget, and couldn't even find editor's picks anymore either.
Dennis also wanted to know how to get contacts in one phone book on his phone to those in Google. Leo thinks there's a way to either merge them or import one phone book into the other at contacts.google.com.
