Must-have menubar items for your Mac.

Funny things those Macs. I remember, back in the days when I was a Windows user, I spent ages trying to get stuff OUT of my task bar (the one near the clock). Whenever I installed an app on Windows it seemed hell-bent on pooping down its own little icon that would not only eat up system recourses, but also bug my ‘I-must-have-a-clean-system-OCD Compulsion. On OSX its the other way around. Your task bar (top right, near the clock) is scarily populated at all and the geekism lies in finding the right productivity apps to put on there.  We have found this little list that will help you populate that pristine piece of desktop real estate with some effective apps.  Personally I do miss “Tab for google+” that can be found in the app store and that has brought Google+ and me .. closer together (read : Distracted me from doing important stuff and watching kittens instead). Enjoy !
