Sidebar Diagnostics
Detailed system information in a desktop sidebar

Sidebar Diagnostics is an open source tool which displays useful system information - CPU type, load, RAM usage, GPU details, network usage, a simple view of free drive space, and date and time - in a desktop sidebar.

There's no setup required, just run the executable and the sidebar appears. In a neat professional touch, the program also asks you to confirm the sidebar has displayed correctly, helps you fix the problem if not, and offers to display its settings for further tweaking. And there are plenty of configuration options, too.

You're able to display the sidebar on the left or right side of the current or any other monitor (if you've several), to reserve space for it (maximising other applications will leave the sidebar visible), or set it "always on top".

The sidebar itself is vastly configurable, with tweaks for width, font, colours, opacity and more.

If you don't need the full set of hardware monitors then you're able to select specific items - CPU, RAM, GPU, Drives or Network - and reorder them.

Sidebar Diagnostics is easy enough to control from the mouse, or a system tray icon, but the Settings dialog also provides optional hotkeys to turn it on or off as required.

Version 3.4.5 (Changelog):

Updated to the latest version of Open Hardware Monitor with bugfix for Kaby Lake clock speed.
The "UI Scale" setting now only affects the sidebar window.
Hardware names should now update correctly after the hardware is changed.
Unfortunately, this fix reset your custom hardware names but you can rename them back.
The app should now correctly run on Windows startup for laptops running on battery power.
All isatap network interfaces should be filtered now.
Updated dependencies.

Verdict:

A stylish system monitor, highly configurable and professionally presented. Recommended.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.42

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.42

• Pin chats to the top of your chat list, so you can quickly find them. Just swipe right on a chat and tap the pin icon.
• You can now send documents of any type. To send a document, open a chat, tap attach — document. 
• When you receive multiple photos, you can now tap and hold on the group of photos to quickly forward or delete all of them.
