Channel Five News has pledged to end the sickly practice of staged shots.
That being the case, they’ve won me over as a viewer – I cannot stand the blatant fakery that has become the norm on the Sky News and BBC News 24 broadcasts. Now, if Channel Five could also concentrate on actual news rather than whatever tiresome play for attention Paris Hilton is making, then it could be revolutionary.
This cool screensaver / OSX widget displays the time in a whole new light: PolarClock by PixelBreaker.
I’m not entirely sure of its value as a screen saver, what with the bright colours and all, but it is hella cool just to look at. Sort of like the Star Trek themed After Dark screensaver I had on my old 386 PC back in the mid 90’s – didn’t appear to save the screen at all, but I’d just have it on in the corner of the room to watch regardless.
Shame it’s not available as a Yahoo! Widget or I’d be all over that, too. 🙂
