The default screen savers found in most operating systems often leave a lot to be desired. Many looking out of place on corporate IT equipment. However, the built in RSS visualizer found in OS X has long been a favourite of mine. However, having it just display Apple’s ‘top’ news feed can get a little boring at times. Using the steps below you can have it display countless RSS feeds from all corners of the internet.
Firstly, unless you already have one your going to need a Google Reader account so if you don’t already have one head over there and sign up for one. Once you have one, add the feeds your interested in.
Select your ‘All Items’ feed from the menu on the right hand side. Now if you check out your address bar you should find the ‘Safari’ default ‘RSS’ icon. If you click that it will take you to an RSS feed of your…… rss feeds!
This in turn can be fed into OS X’s screensaver setup dialogue box to enable the RSS Visualizer to display RSS feeds from all your favourite sources! Gone is the boredom of sitting with your feet up watching your screensaver!
