Having been a Mac OSX user now for some years I appreciate the simplicity of CoconutBattery (http://www.coconut-flavour.com/), which shows you all relevant information of the battery of your laptop (iBook, PowerBook, MacBook, ...) and has one outstanding feature: you can save the current health state of the laptop's battery and thus monitor the long term development (degradation) of the battery. Since I have to work in Windows at work :-( I was looking for a similar tool in the MS world. You can find a number of battery monitoring programs for MS Windows, which give you a plethora of (useless) information - or do not work at all. Finally I decided to make one of my own (the world waited for that so badly!). And here it is.
Since I did not want to restrict it to Windows only I made it a GTK application, which is cross platform portable. I created the low level data gathering functions for both Windows and Linux. You are very welcome to add additional ports (e.g. BSD or whatever).

Searching for Affordable Business Phone Service? Icon

If you're on the hunt for business phone service that is reliable and budget-friendly, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is your answer.

Today's small-to-medium-sized (SMB) businesses and large enterprises are saving on their monthly communications costs by making one simple decision: to switch to a VoIP service solution from their old, outdated Plain Old Telephone Service (POTS). By choosing a new VoIP service, these companies enjoy the flexibility, reliability, call features, and audio quality that only a VoIP service can provide. Plus, they cut their phone bill by up to 70%!
