Microsoft Dynamics partner news screensaver

One interesting tidbit that I heard at Convergence was about the release of a screensaver that partners could run that would pull in newsfeeds from PartnerSource. I've tried it out and it's pretty cool. You can select which products you want to hear about (Dynamics GP, NAV or AX). And you can select whether you want business news and/or technical news. Also a few settings for how often you want it to look for new articles or change the picture.

If you have a PartnerSource account you can download it from this page.

The text below is from the description:

The Microsoft Dynamics Partner Instant Update Screensaver gives you the opportunity to get updates on an ongoing basis from the global Microsoft Dynamics Product Management teams. It offers you the opportunity to get global updates directly to your desktop. The news column in the left hand side of the screensaver is updated with new announcements on an ongoing basis and links to the full details on PartnerSource. Once installed, news updates will be fed automatically to your screen whenever you are online and the screensaver is activated.

Install the screensaver on your machine and specify your preferences using "settings" in the top right corner of the screensaver.
