View bandwidth of iTunes downloads Apps
This may or may not be new but I never noticed it until iTunes 10. I was downloading a podcast and noted that in the Downloads area in the iTunes sidebar the 'X mins remaining' status and clicked on the actual text by accident. Doing this added the current rate as the podcast was being downloaded to the display. Like I said before, this may be old news but definitely cool if it's just been added.

[crarko adds: I tested this, and it works as described, in iTunes U as well as podcasts, so I assume it's just a general feature of downloads in iTunes. This has probably been around a while, but I didn't see it documented here. As mentioned in this previous hint, it can be worth it to monitor the bandwidth usage in case you have some other bandwidth-hungry application running.]

It is a cool feature, and it has been present in iTunes for probably as long as there has been a 'downloads' list - certainly for several years / iTunes versions...

Is there any way to configure it to show KB/s instead of kb/s?

Safari downloads work the same way. Always been there.
