Fresh from iSlayer.com: iStat Pro Version 3.3.

As they say:

iStat pro is the ultimate system monitoring widget, consisting of nine sections which can be minimized, expanded, or closed.

Itfeatures detailed information on CPU, memory, hard drives, IP andexternal IP, bandwidth, CPU temperature, battery, uptime, temperatures,and fans. You’ll know exactly what’s going on inside your Mac!

Not for the faint-hearted or anyone with a small screen.

An if you have all options activated, you should at least have a 17″ widesreen display (like my macbook pro…).

Now you can also monitor the temperature and fans on Intel Macs. I’ve been waiting for that…

I know, Discwarrior for Intel Macs is out for a few weeks now, but I just stumbled upon the Upgrade.

New to Discwarrior?

It’s the essential tool for harddisc repairs on (Intel and PowerPC) Macs. It repairs your harddrive after failures by rebuilding the directory from scratch. Like they say:

“Everything just disappeared after your Mac went
haywire. All your work documents. The music you most enjoy. The movie
of your kid’s first steps. It’s your life and it’s gone. Don’t
panic! DiskWarrior will find your documents, photos, music and any
other files when disaster strikes and things go missing.

Perhaps
you’ve tried to open a document and all that happens is a color wheel
that spins and spins and spins… Or when your Mac starts up, all you get
is a blinking question mark… Or you were in the middle of editing a
movie and now your external hard disk isn’t on the desktop… Or your
MP3s won’t play… Or every time you look through your photos, your Mac
crashes. DiskWarrior gets you back up and running fast!”

We’ve been working with Discwarrior since mounting FireWire harddrives on apeish G3s for the first time (and the directories were corrupted after every second mount) and could almost always repair our discs with this great tool and with the update it now also works on my MonkeyBook Pro.

By the way: It doesn’t however help if your harddisc really crashed physically ;-(

Really a must-read, but have a look for yourself…
