I have come across two more gadgets that are useful.
The first is very much a ‘personal taste’ gadget. I find it very relaxing while working on my computer to have classical music running in the background. On page 2 of ‘Add more Gadgets’, you will find the iClassical Radio Player. It takes up very little space on the bar and is incredibly easy to operate. Of course, high speed unlimited broadband is a must to get the most out of it.
The second gadget is Presto’s Hard Drive monitor on page 7. I do not keep this running all of the time, but it is useful when I am moving stuff around on the installed drives. It can monitor four drives/partitions (user configurable) at any one time. Like iClassical, it takes up very little space on the sidebar.
