Screensavers come in many forms. Most of them only serve as desktop embellishments, since new monitors tend to be less prone to "burn" than older ones. This screensaver is an exception to the rule. Besides being visually attractive, it features some useful functions. For example, it displays an animated clock showing the actual hour with minutes and seconds. Also, you can set it up to show news feeds from several news sites, as well as the weather forecast for your country and city. You can set up reminders for dates and appointments using the default sound file, or any other of your choice. By default, the clock plays a sound reminder every 15 minutes, but you can turn it off, if you want. And if this isn't enough, you can customize the program's interface by using one of the many styles available, including one of the popular TV show House MD. Also, you can set the background image and the transparency degree of the program. This new version includes many more styles, some of them sent by users. It also includes a revamped control panel, which is more intuitive and has more configurable functions.
