Geeks Have Tools Too

As an avid Mac user, I am always looking for a way to customize my desktop. As many of you know, RainMeter is a way to customize your desktop if you are a Windows user. Wouldn't it be great if you could do things like that on your Mac? Well, as a matter of fact you can! With a simple application called GeekTool. GeekTool is a system preferences pain that runs scripts, images, and just plain notes, right on your desktop. Its a great way to leave reminders for yourself, have a clock with a date, or even see what iTunes song you are currently listening to. Plus, you can create your own custom scripts using AppleScript. You can also use scripts that other people have made and add them to your collection. In addition, you can color customize everything to make it fit with the theme of your computer. I highly recommend this application to all Mac users out there! Remember, geeks have tools too.
