iPod nano page update disables Dashboard Mickey Mouse clock

Just about a year ago, shortly after Apple refreshed the iPod nano, Macworld discovered that you could use Safari’s Web Clipping feature to add a working Mickey Mouse clock to your OS X Dashboard. A year later, Apple has updated the iPod line again, taking the Dashboard clock with it.

This little trick worked because the Dashboard was pulling the clock face — generated with HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and a few images — from the iPod nano web page. The most recent updated removed the clock and pop! So it disappeared from Dashboards everywhere. Now I just see the image above.

So long, little Mickey! It was a fun year.
