Monitor Vital System Stats with iStat Menu
Every once in a while you stumble upon a utility, app, or feature that you immediately fall in love with and wonder how you ever live without… well today and for me, that is iStat Menu. It’s been around a while, but apparently I’ve neglected it to my own detriment because this thing is awesome. Installing is a breeze and it becomes a System Preference pane, where you can adjust settings to monitor everything from the temperatures in your Mac, to CPU activity, disk space, bandwidth usage, and oh so much more. If you ask me, this is an absolute must download for Mac geeks, so check it out!
Update: Someone purchased the rights to the software and started charging, but you can still download the free version of iStats Menu and get all the features.
