[] Marina del Rey, California - Amuse, Inc. today is pleased to announce My Living Desktop 4.9.2 for Mac OS X, an update to their critically acclaimed application which provides dozens of unique high definition videos each creating a soothing visual and aural environment on the Mac desktop and as a screensaver. This update is in conjunction with a one day MacUpdate promotion offering a 40% discount on My Living Desktop.
