GeekTool embeds file content, web text and web images in the desktop. To select content, open the GeekTool pane in System Preferences, and specify update frequency. GeekTool also embeds shell-command output in the desktop; that means that you can keep Terminal commands running in the background at all times directly on the desktop wallpaper. As Macworld explains, “As events occur on your Mac, the system log will update live on your desktop.” The screenshot demonstrates live updating of web traffic stats embedded on the desktop.
