Hey guys, loved the show as usual.

You guys mentioned menu meters during this show (I think), and I’m just wondering where I can download them. I looked on google, but wasn’t sure which one was the right one.

Thanks a lot,



Menu Meters


One of the callers on podcast 179 referred to a previous ‘tip’ saying you could improve performance by having iTunes on a separate ‘spindle’. Is this true? I have multiple internal drives in my Mac Pro. Would I really see any benefits from moving the iTunes library to a different drive than the OS lives on?
