Recently I updated my laptop to the latest and greatest.
I did so after consulting the Ars Technica review.
The review covered the new desktop widgets, so I was keen to try these out and after a successful upgrade I had a look at the widgets and added few, which I normally had other utilities to do:
- A small date indicator (there is one in the top right corner in the menu)
- A small calendar (I often open a terminal and use
- A weather widget, I like to go outside after working hours, so it is nice to see the weather forecast before going for a run or a walk
- And finally, a widget to indicate the battery on several attached devices and my laptop
And here is a little thing that annoys me.
Apple have always been good with even addressing the detail and have always been a very detail oriented company, but here they slip.
As you can see I have battery indicators for two mice - well this is actually a keyboard and a mouse, so I cannot see which is which.
My problem with this is that, before when I wanted to get an overview of my battery status I would open the Bluetooth menu from the Desktop menu and I could see all the devices.
And well what do you know, in that menu the keyboard actually has a keyboard icon and the mouse icon is in the same style as in the widget, so the keyboard icon is probably in some design file somewhere in Apple HQ...
I would very much like for this communicatae the proper information by using proper icons, since then it would be super sweet.
I have written to Apple using some basic feedback form, so my hopes for this to be fixed are not particularly high.
