Mike Y., chief IT manager - Online News Screensaver review|
Being the chief IT manager of the large engineering company, I should always stay up on the latest news in my realm. That's why I'm using Online News Screensaver for a couple of months now to read the ground-breaking news on the software security and some other fields. I consider it to be the most convenient way to learn about things, you're interested in. You no longer should waste your time on reading all those countless web sites and news reports! A brief glance at your computer screen during the lunch is quite enough.
Not long ago the large screen has been mounted in our main hall. The current production line status as well as some service information is displayed here. I got an idea to use Online News Screensaver to show the latest news here. But as there we've got the intranet with more than 500 computers attached, I decided that it would be reasonable to enable every worker to view all the news directly on his computer screen.
So I've contacted the cool-screensavers.com technical support to find out whether it is possible to use Online News Screensaver in the intranet without Internet access available. To my surprise, the detailed instructions on setting up our own RSS news channel have been mailed to me this very day. I can responsibly say - they're not sleeping there.
Since then all the workers of our company have the permanent access to the internal news and announcements and never miss any important events. Especially they contented that they don't have to spend their working hours on reading all this stuff any longer. Now they learn it while having a coffee break and looking at their favorite images on the background. I suppose it to be extremely good for the discipline as well as for the labor productivity.
As for the price of such number of copies - it would hardly strike your budget. The site license had cost us only about $400. The profit from its introduction surely covers this many times.
We have been using this screensaver at Binary Things for quite a while
by now and are very happy about it. Lunch breaks have become a lot more
informative, everyone gets the information he or she (you know
girls :) wants delivered right to their desktop. The cool thing is
that you can fine-tune the viewer to serve your particular interests -
sports, weather, finance... you name it! And it looks gorgeous, too!
We bought the Site License and never had a second's regret at it.
Online News Screensaver is a web enabled screensaver tool that delivers the latest news, while displaying your favorite image as background. You can select from various categories of news coverage (also WebAttack latest software) and it will bring you the latest headlines whenever the screensaver is running. You can choose to use your own background images (rotates through a specified folder) or just use a plain background. Pressing the F5 button on your keyboard will launch your browser with details on the current headline.
The closest thing to an intravenous jolt for all you news junkies!
The Online News Screensaver delivers RSS updates in transparent windows over a screensaver!
Now this is for those hardcore aggregator readers out there. The Online News Screensaver!! Free for a trial period (not sure for how long), but neat nonetheless (only $15 after the trial period). It's totally customizable too, so now my Feedpapers feed appears when my desktop is idle. Very Very cool!!!
