10 New Screensavers – Halloween, Sports and More

[Windows Only]

Last week I showed you 10 Spooky Screensavers for Halloween. This week 4 out of the 10 are new Halloween themes, but these are a bit happier. In addition, they’ve included some sports themes and even a fish tank theme.

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.

One of the nice features of the screensavers above, is that they all now have settings to mute the sounds. Some of the screensavers also have a setting to include a small analog clock on the screen. I think you’ll like that.

Download Phantom of the Opera: Special Edition Opera Browser for Halloween

Today is Halloween eve and Opera Software has prepared a special treat for Opera fans. They have released a Halloween edition of Opera browser for Windows and Mac.

Opera-Halloween-Edition

This special edition includes “Phantom of the Opera II” speed dial background and a custom Halloween skin. If you have already installed Opera on your computer, you will need to backup bookmarks.adr, speeddial.ini and operaprefs.ini files before proceeding with the installation. All these files are present in the Opera profile directory. After backing up the aforementioned files, you can install Opera Halloween edition on top of the existing installation. If you still see the default skin, simply select the Halloween skin from Tools –> Appearance (Shift+F12). You can get back your original bookmarks and speed dials by replacing the newer bookmarks.adr and speeddial.ini files with the backed up versions. If you want to switch back to the original skin select the Opera Standard skin in the Appearance dialogue box.

iPhone Lovers, Here is a Halloween Costume You Will Like

Halloween is all about costumes, and I have watched Halloween parades over the years, to see simply outlandish but innovative costumes that make you laugh, and also scare you.

If you are a iPhone lover, here is your chance to show off your love by wearing a fully functional iPhone Halloween costume.

The iPhone Halloween costume is powered by a car battery and has a full-size 42 inch LCD TV for display. Wonder how many people will go ahead and spend $2000 for one-night, and carry around a 85 pound costume around their necks? Would you?

Watch a video of the iPhone Halloween costume in action:
