The clock is beautiful and done well, but the other features do not appeal to me as it stands as who wants to feed feeds only in screen saver mode? Not many. I would price it around $5 and that's all. It has hung several times on me.

When the original version started making my Mac misbehave I was convinced I had a virus. After I found out that that this was because this s. s. was causing the problem I complained to the authors, who in a very rude reply (in poor English) pointed out that a warning about this was posted on their Web site. But I acquired this s. s. from this site and never visited, or thought I had any need, to visit their site. No warning came with the download itself, and it would have been possible for them to write a date-expiring app. that expired in a more graceful way (by putting up a message or simply ceasing to work). Anybody who would release a Mac-sabotaging problem either has a severe competency problem or a severe ethics problem. Pay for this s. s.? I figure they owe ME money for all the time I wasted trying to figure out what was wrong with my Mac and fix it. I think folks ought to avoid like the plague this app. and all other products by this company.

This is a great screensaver, BUT: 1. Too high price, Freeware is nice 2. Stops working after a while? That's stupid

Dear users, the version 1.1 just expired on 31st August 2004. That's why it doesn't work anymore. Please download and use the version 1.2 or higher. It never expires. By Softobe Tech Support

Dear Developer: Since you didn't bother to inform us that your earlier free version would stop working after a fixed date, I and I suspect a lot of other people had the exact same kind of grief that a previous complaint has noted (flashing screen, beeping sound, etc.). And I suspect a lot of us had to figure out by trial-and-error that Mac3DWatch was the culprit (before discovering this I had to eliminate a other possible culprits, such as SETI and the Mac Screen Server app. itself). I don't know if anybody shares my view, but I think this was horribly unethical of you, you have done a real disservice to a lot of innocent people. I hope that fellow Mac users will join me in indulging in old Quaker practise of "shunning" so that you are for all intents and purposes banned from the Mac community.

I downloaded this from Apple's site as freeware. It's a beauty to watch (no pun intended), and I installed it at home and at the office. BUT...... after a few weeks (maybe 3 - 4), it stopped working - on both machines. Furthermore, it wouldn't let the screen go into sleep mode - my Mac kept beeping. Worst of all, any attempt to change the screensaver through Preferences, resulted in Preferences quitting. Eventually, I had to search for every file related to this screensaver, using the finder, and delete them. Additionally, moving the mouse sometimes caused a freeze that could last up to 5 minutes, or required a shutdown and restart. All in all, it's a beautiful saver to look at; the news RSS is fabulous; but its bugs are cause for concern.

I have been unable to get the RSS reader to work, probably because of some firewall or proxy configuration issue. The included and online help has no solution (or even mention) for this, neither was the author able to help in any way. A petty, because the graphics are beautiful, and I do like the RSS functionality in screen saver mode. Other RSS readers like YouControl work fine for me, so it is definitely possible.
