The ubiquitous and indomitable Energizer Bunny(EB) is now a Screen Saver designed exclusively for the Macintosh and PowerBook by PC Dynamics. True to his spirited reputation, he just keeps going and going, strutting his stuff with sound and animation. EB parachutes through clouds; snorkels under water with fish, ocean plants and sharks; or sports a cowboy hat and holster while turning and nodding as he drums along. For variety, choose the "random cycle" feature and see all the scenes.
You can even wallpaper your desktop with EB. Another setting causes EB to "drop in" on you at preset times. EB can even be configured to make these guest appearances without interfering with other screen saver products.
The 465K EB Screen Saver is a Control Panel Device. Preferences options include size, appearance, and sound/no sound. To disable EB, simply start up your Macintosh while holding the "Caps Lock" key down. Passwords can be set to protect sensitive data.
I'm sure this screen saver will "outlast" all others (that I have). It's practical, entertaining, and the current price is unbelievable.
