I downloaded and installed the two following cool gadgets:
This gadgets shows you your wireless connection strength and the name of the wireless LAN you are connected to. It even shows you if the connections is secured or not.
Another gadget I downloaded is the power meter that shows you the battery level.
The next gadget is my favorite one. You connect to your Live Messenger and it shows you your contacts.
This gadgets has a few options to choose from, so you can set your online status, you can choose to only show your online contacts or also the offline contacts. Matt states that he cannot find a way to set his status so far but that has changed with this new version.
I advise you to download the latest versions of the sidebar gadgets from Tom's blog as they are changing quickly.
As you can see the number of gadgets available online is still growing. This is great, keep up creating such cool and useful gadgets. One I really like to see is the soccer scores from the Belgian Jupiler league.
