Do you know the one thing that I absolutely love about my BlackBerry? The little LED indicator light. That single light informs me when I have a new message, if a call is coming in, if Bluetooth is turned on, and a whole lot more. So why isn’t there such a light on computers? One modder answered that question by installed a three-color LED light on his Eee PC with a very similar functionality.
The light sits atop the screen so it can be seen if the lid is open or closed. Whenever a Twitter, Pidgin, or Gmail message comes in, it flashes a different color. Now when can this same thing be available on commercial products? I’m looking at you, Apple.
