The Sad Demise of the Screensaver


You can see my guest blog at Life as a Human on the sad demise of the once proud screensaver!

Offices full of workstations that have been abandoned during lunchtime or coffee break had enough flashing and flickering movement on the PC screens to bring on a seizure. Among the early favourites were bursting fireworks, cute kittens, inspirational words, family pictures and, of course, the ubiquitous aquarium (often complete with bubbling sounds which were audible in the background when talking to the person on the phone, like something out of Jules Verne).
