The Screensaver: Not Dead Yet
Remember the popular screensavers from 10-15 years ago? You could make your computer screen look like an aquarium, outer space, or a fantastical world where toasters flew. My favorite may have been Johnny Castaway.
Well despite no longer technically needing a program to save our screens from phosphor burn-in, the screensaver lives on. Smashing Magazine put out this nice list last month of some of the coolest ways you can still decorate your computer.
Technology and graphics have come a long way since the days of flying toasters. Some modern screensavers are even integrated with websites like Flickr so they display new pictures every time they run. But if you're like me and you miss Johnny Castaway and wonder how he's doing on that island, I found him here.
