    So, I was at work and was doing a speedtest.net test over WiFi.
    It showed really slow speeds, but my wireless icon (top if the screen) showed all three curves.
    I figured it was a problem with the internet connection at work.
    I went to turn off WiFi and saw that my connection was actually just the dot (no curves).
    I was connected to an access point that was too far away.
    I see that as a major issue as you wouldn't know what the actual strength is.
    I thought that was the point of status icons.
