The Blue LED
Airtame has a blue light which pulses like a heartbeat. It is used to symbolize the device being on and also how much of the CPU power is being used. The pulse has 3 increments, slow (0-50%), fast (50-80%) and faster (80-100%). Generally, if the light is pulsing very fast, the device is in a bad state or is having trouble loading a webpage.
