Compare the two screenshots above. Can you spot the difference? Courtesy of Bilal, this is the key combination that replaces bars with a dBm readout: ALT-NMLL (hold ALT and then type NMLL). Want the bars back? Just type it again.

Lovely ;)

I keep it on that all the time!

I didn't think I was a nerd… but the fact that I find this so cool tells me otherwise.

btw, what's that elephant app?

Bilal Jaffery, 2010-07-20

Evernote. Highly recommended!

Volker Weber, 2010-07-20

is there something similar possible for the iPhone (without a jailbraek)?

I thought you didn't use the facebook app?

As an aside, +1 for Evernote. I gave it a plug in This Week In Lotus. I find it a very handy piece of software.

I think Notes users used to maintain their notes in Journal, and if they were so lucky to have access to a Domino server to place the file on, they could replicate it to a number of machines.

Evernote is the super duper version of that since it also replicates the content to all your mobile devices, which in my case are a lot. ;-)

Since I did not pay too much attention in Physics at school, would somebody please be so kind and explain what dBm indicates, and why it is a negative number? And which is "better" - lower or higher number?

Dezibel on a 1 Milliwatt base. -70 is better than -71.

Volker Weber, 2010-07-21

Is there anything similar for Android?
Thank you

oof. -80. Cool tip - thanks!

Don't worry. You are good over -100.
