PolarClock and Analogy, two beautiful clock screensavers

I’m not very enthusiastic of screensavers, but I really like these two.

PolarClock is an interesting screensaver that displays the time, date, month and day in a series of concentric circles. Each of these time parameters are represented as separate circles. As time passes by, the circles grow incrementally. You can change the color, thickness and radius of the arc, and shuffle them in any order you want. You can also change the text font, size and positions.


PolarClock is available as a Windows screensaver, Mac OSX dash board widget as well as an iPhone application. You can catch a demo of the screensaver on the website. It’s beautiful.

Another screensaver with similar concept but with lesser bling is Analogy. Analogy is a typographic clock screensaver that displays the time – hours, minutes and seconds in numbers slowly revolving around concentric circles. The numbers leave a trail in an arc as it goes around and the tail of the arc slowly fades away with time. Analogy has two color modes – black text over white background and white text over black.


Analogy is available both as Windows and Mac screensaver.

The task manager is ideal for real-time analysis of CPU and memory utilization. It even displays a short history of CPU utilization in the form of a graph. You get a small time-window, about 30 seconds or so, depending on how large the viewing area is.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
