Quench Your Thirst with 14 Free Oktoberfest Screensavers

[Windows Only]

These beer themed screensavers are perfect for getting into a thirsty mood for the upcoming October festivities. If you are hosting your own little Oktoberfest party, one of these on your computer screen is sure to be popular. Just be sure to  set a password on the screensaver. I don’t recommend letting drunk people operate your PC. There’s nothing worse than a PC with a spyware hangover.

As many of you have learned by now, not all free screensavers are created equal. Many times, free  means that you have to install stupid toolbars, adware and other unwanted junk along with the screensaver. That’s not true of the ones at NewFreeScreensavers.com.

Once again, remember my warning about letting your buddies use the PC while drunk.  However, your crew may fall on the floor laughing, while watching what happens when a squirrel has too much to drink. (video: Drunk Squirrel)

Techie Buzz Verdict:

I’ve downloaded and installed several of the screensavers at this site and never had a problem with any of them. These screensavers are safe, totally free, and there are dozens more to check out once you visit.

Play GIF Images In Slow And Reverse Motion With PlayGif

greenshot_2011-01-29_23-21-29Have you ever wondered if you could have some control over GIF animations? Like, did you ever want to pause, rewind, or run the images in slow or fast motion. Well, you can now easily do it using a simple online tool, PlayGif.com.

PlayGif.com adds functionality to animated GIFs, that includes controls for pause, reverse and speed adjustment. The website splits the image into separate frames, which can be played and controlled by the user.  This is a brilliant tool, for it provides the user better control of how the animation is played and how fast. Also, in certain situations, like this population chart, having the ability to pause or slow down the image can help immensely with analyzing the data.

To use their functionality, you’ll need to enter in the url of the gif image (as of now, you can’t upload the image on PlayGif.com. Use an image hosting site like Imgur.com to first upload the image on the Internet). Or if you plan on using the service regularly, they also have a javascript bookmarklet that can make your task much easier.

Taiwanese News Site Parodies TSA’s "Pat Down Full Body Scan Search"

This was inevitable. Technology in the United States took a new turn with TSA’s new airport "full body" scanners that err exposed 100s of passengers. What the heck, even Reddit was all over it.

The new "pat down my err junk" search was the ridicule of the internet with thousands of people deciding to boycott flying altogether. However, one news site, specifically a Taiwanese site which deals with creating funny animated news segments was all over it when they created a new video depicting the new "pat down" search in an animated form.

Well, pun and fun aside, watch the video below.

Warning: Not Safe For Work unless you have or plan to visit a nearby US airport in near future.

Video Of Gingerbread ‘Screen Off’ Animation Surfaces

The folks over at Phandroid have managed to get their hands on a video of Gingerbread running on the Nexus One. The video is only ten seconds long and shows an animation which occurs when the screen is turned off. The animation is something similar to the effect which happens when users used to switch off their old tube TVs back in the 80-90s.

Here is the Gingerbread Screen Offanimation video I am talking about -:

Of course, the above animation is nothing stellar but nevertheless it does have a cool’ factor to it (at least, I do). As of now, no version of Android or any Custom ROM has this sort of animation when turning the screen off.

With Gingerbread announcement around the corner, I am sure more videos of it in action will be popping up on the Internet.
