December 2, 2009 in Mac OSX (E)

[] Marina Del Rey, CA - Premier provider of video desktop solutions for the Macintosh, Amuse, Inc., today announced the release and immediate availability of My Living Desktop 4.5, an incredibly innovative Macintosh application that replaces the standard 'still' desktop to which Mac users are accustomed, with a beautiful video desktop that plays high-definition movies of the user's choice. My Living Desktop 4.5 provides Mac users around the world with an engaging and innovative way to enhance their Mac experience.

With a focus on intuitive ease-of-use, My Living Desktop 4.5 provides a unique blend of video desktop (moving wallpaper) and screensaver, creating an entirely new computing experience. My Living Desktop 4.5 boasts an extensive collection of stunning, high-definition movie videos shot from all around the globe, accompanied with relaxing nature sound effects. Upon purchase, users can download more than 40 hi-definition movie videos from within the software itself. And with its built-in video importer, users can customize their desktop experience by effortlessly importing personal scenes such as family, friend, and special event movies; vacation movies; and much more; for use as video desktops and gorgeous screen savers.

In addition, My Living Desktop 4.5 sports automatic Serenity Breaks. An extremely popular feature, Serenity Breaks allows the user to set My Living Desktop to remind them to take a break. The user simply specifies the Serenity Break interval or time(s) of day, and at the appropriate time a pleasant sound chimes, all active work fades to the background, and the entire screen converts into a relaxing and absorbing video scene.

Other features include the ability to automatically mute My Living Desktop's 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, the sound automatically turns back on. Moreover, users may designate any set of applications for which My Living Desktop disables itself or mutes. Users can also set My Living Desktop to recognize when it is operating on a laptop's battery, and disable itself to conserve power. My Living Desktop automatically resumes operation when the user plugs the laptop into a power source.

My Living Desktop 4.5 is priced at $34.95 (USD) for a single-user license, and $49.95 for five-user license, and is available from the My Living Desktop website. Existing customers may upgrade to version 4.5 from any previous version for $14.95. Existing customers desiring to upgrade can do so from within the software, which will automatically guide them through a simple upgrade process. Also, existing single-user customers may upgrade to a multiple-user license for $20.00.
