Ring's Screen Savers
Has anyone checked out the Ring's screen savers from the movie's web site? It is pettey well done. I like the one with the static screen along with the sound effect.

Be forwarned tho, the two screen savers have spy wares on them :evil , but you can block them by using zone alarm.

Im using or now WAS using the one with the logo that glows. Where the hell did you get the spyware info? F this, Im gonna use the Battle Royale one I founded last week. That is a low blow to include spyware in a freakin screen saver.

Spy-ware
I can tell because right after I installed the screen saver my Zone Alarm flashed a warning telling me that the screen saver wants to access the internet. Why would a screen saver wants to access the net for? That is, to send infos about me :(

wait a minute guys
Okay, it does access the internet, but are you 100 percent it is a spyware connection or perhaps it is used to connect you to the Ring website. Check the settings for your screensaver and you will notice that there is a radio button that will launch you to the website from the screensaver settings menu. Now in addition to that, I can't honestly say they have plans in mind to update these screensavers now that the movie is practically upon us, but I did notice it is using the ScreenTime system which is what Disney Interactive is using for their Tron 2.0 screensaver, which intern requires an internet connection so that it can update itself in synchronicity with the website when they so choose. Lets not get too paranoid.

Updating
But are you sure while the ScreenTime system is updating the screen saver it is not also sending infos about you? Anyway it would be helpful if they would disclose the fact that the screen saver will be updating itself via the internet.

well...
I can't vouch for ScreenTime, their intent to deliver dynamic screensaver content seems well meant but, I don't know them personally so all I can do is suggest you check their site out and perhaps bounce some questions off of them. They are at...

Lithium...Tron2.0 the fps3D shooter coming soon from Disney Interactive. Go here to find out more...

Enjoy!

Re: well...
I don't know why this even comes up - I am not voluntarily putting anything to do with Ringu on any video screen near me :D

No, really.
No, I REALLY want this now. Can someone start giving me suggestions about who to ask for this & how? It would make a great screen-saver... I just want to beta-test it.

A screensaver of the Samaravid would rule. Anyone have one yet?

Whee!! Battle Royale!! Yay!!

Anyuway, back to Ring...Mrgazpacho/Chris is right. There is NO way I am going to put anything with Sadako or Samara on my screen. Hells no. Now the idea for putting it on your ex's comp has merit. I wish my ex was scared of things like that.

A screen saver with Samara walking from the well towards you will totally own. I'm working on it.

Re: Ring's Screen Savers
Right now I've got the grainy colour shot of Sadako walking from the well to the tv screen as my background image. I also have the static/video screensaver from the official site. I would love to have a screensaver of her walking from the well to the screen. Who knows - perhaps one day I'll come home and find her sitting on my bed... ;)

Actually, my computer is next to my bed. She would probably land on it when she came out of the monitor. Now that you mention it, though... ;)

Spyware is the devil's tool for spying on your computer. Once installed, it can report back system information, what kind of mp3's and music tastes you have, etc to the interested party. The possibilities are endless. Spyware has many applications and is used in advertising and as far as I am concerned they are all less than honorable. Run Adaware. It will detect all the spyware currently installed in your system and you have an option to remove each one or all at the same time.
