Batteries in a wireless Apple keyboard and mouse!

This is a really cool widget to monitor the state of the batteries in your wireless Apple keyboard and mighty mouse. Once again, this tip is not for everyone so that is why I posted another tip earlier today. The widget will change color when the batteries drop under 25% and 10%. The free widget is called Mighty Monitor. Download here on MacUpdate!

Having just changed my batteries in my mighty mouse (long live the mighty mouse), I can assure you that OS X already has this under control. It very politely told me my batteries were running low. And then when I ignored the initial warning the OS came back with a more stringently worded recommendation to acquire new batteries, which I then heeded. The real surprise was coming back to my OS X box with the MM only to discover that it didn't immediately discover the mouse. I took several minutes actually before they synced up again. My son knocked the MM on the floor the other day, discharging the batteries all over the place. But this time when I finally got MM back together (tough little contraption), it synced up in about 30 seconds. YMMV, but this widget is redundant in my opinion. Those Apple engineers really do quite a bang-up job of sanding the underside of the drawers.
