Today’s featured Windows Sidebar Gadget from the Windows 7 Personalization Gallery is called Computer Status (over 328K downloads).  Its mission is to provide you at a glance information about your computer.  Oh yeah, it also plays the radio!


All of the radio stations appear to be from the UK but there is a good collection of genres available in the options.  Each of the icons next to the status information are clickable and will take you to the applicable parts of your OS:

  • CPU – Reliability and Performance Monitor
  • RAM – Windows Task Manager
  • Hard Drives and CD/DVD Drives – Windows Explorer with that directory as the root
  • Recycle Bin – Recycle Bin
