You Software has released You Control 1.3, an update to its menu utilities collection that adds four new modules — CPU Monitor, Disk Monitor, Memory Monitor and Network Monitor — and updates the iTunes module with the ability to view and modify song ratings, as well as choose new button designs for the controls. The CPU Monitor graphically displays how much processing power is consumed by each application, including the system software, while the Disk Monitor shows available space in all mounted hard drives as well as each drive’s read/write activity.
The Memory Monitor displays how much RAM is free, with advanced user options for viewing information about Memory Pages. The Network Monitor offers 20 visual indicators for checking incoming and outgoing network traffic and enables access to detailed information about Ethernet, AirPort, Bluetooth and other connections.
This is a free update for registered users. The full version of You Control 1.3 is US$49.95, although You Software is currently offering it for $19.95 through its March Madness sale. A fully functional, 15-day demo is available for download from the developer’s Web site. Mac OS X v10.3 and 10MB of free hard drive space are required.
