HardwareGrowler is the best way to find out when hardware status changes on the Mac. If you need to know what's going on with your Mac, then you need HardwareGrowler.

When your power cable unplugs, HardwareGrowler will spring into action and lets you know about it. Plug in a device like a keyboard, thumb drive, or even a usb headset and get notified about the hardware changes.

HardwareGrowler will also let you know about changes to networking on your Mac. When a wireless connection changes to a different access point or an IP address changes, you'll be notified about the change.

HardwareGrowler is what you need if you need to know about your hardware. HardwareGrowler uses Growl to provide notifications or can do it all by itself. Simple to use, easy to configure, HardwareGrowler is the application for those who need to know.

Lack of Notification Center Integration

This is an Application favorite for me, it gives me an easy overview of what is going on behind the hood, but after Apple introduced Notification Center the app seems a bit oldschool.
I Would like it to stop acting as a "Growl app" with an Notification Center overlay, and start being a Notification Center Extension, showing proper icons for different Hardware groups, instead of the generic Hardwaregrowler icon. after introducing Yosemite this should be a no brainer!
And frankly I Don’t really care for backwards Compatiblity! Specially Now when the OS is Free.
