[prMac.com] Marina del Rey, California - Premier provider of video desktop solutions, Amuse, Inc., has announced My Living Desktop 4.0 for Mac OS X, a complete rebrand of their highly popular video desktop and screen saver utility, Serene Saver Pro. My Living Desktop replaces the standard still desktop to which Mac users are accustomed, with a gorgeous video desktop that plays high-definition movies of the users choice.
With a focus on ease-of-use, My Living Desktop is a unique cross between a video desktop (moving wallpaper) and screen saver, offering an entirely new dimension of personalized computing experience. With its built-in video importer, users can effortlessly import their own movie scenes for use as video desktops. Anyone can now have beloved family movies, movies of friends and special events, vacation movies, and much more as their desktop, or as a superb screen saver.
"Even with the success of Serene Saver Pro, we wanted to re-brand it with a more meaningful title that immediately tells customers what the product is all about" said Kevin Kachikian CEO of Amuse, Inc. "We think My Living Desktop does that perfectly." My Living Desktop continues to remain the #7 top download on Apple's Download website and is a featured download and a Staff Pick.
My Living Desktop boasts a wide variety of stunning, high-definition movie videos shot from all around the globe, accompanied with relaxing nature sound effects. Upon purchase, download access to over three dozen additional hi-def movie videos are available from within the software itself.
The application also sports Automatic Serenity Breaks. This feature allows the user to have My Living Desktop automatically remind them to take a break. Simply specify the interval or time(s) of day and a pleasant sound chimes, all work is faded into the background and the entire screen converts into a playing scene.
Among My Living Desktop's most prolific features is its ability to automatically mute its sound at appropriate times. For example, when the user launches a music player, My Living Desktop can disable and/or mute itself. When the user finishes listening, it will automatically turn back on. Users may designate any set of applications for which My Living Desktop disables itself or mutes. My Living Desktop can also be set to recognize when the users laptop is operating on battery power, and disable itself to conserve power. My Living Desktop turns back on when the user plugs into a power source.
