Transformers 3 Dark of the Moon Wallpapers (1280 x 960 pixels)

There haven’t been a lot of Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon graphics yet available to make wallpapers, especially all the other characters besides Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and Shockwave. However, here’s what I’ve been able to find and enhance for wallpapers (as well as remove annoying corporate logos). When I get more, I will add to the collection.

TED Ads Worth Spreading 2011, Part 3 of 3

This is the final part of 3 posts showing all the ads TED deemed worth spreading. Please click on the links for Part 1 and Part 2.

The TED (Technology Entertainment and Design) community just released its 2011 Ads Worth Spreading contest winners, and the ads are better than the ones I have seen for the Super Bowl in any year! But what did you expect from a brilliant group who’s moniker is “Ideas Worth Spreading”?

These ads aren’t like those in the Super Bowl where they last 30-60 seconds. They tend to be much longer, often the full version of the ad rather than the truncated TV time version. However, with ads like these, I could watch commercials in place of TV shows because I don’t notice how long or short the ads were. I’m actually a little sad once it’s over, alongside whatever mood the commercials left me in.

I have posted the ads here because I have found higher quality versions of the ads than the ones available on the TED website. Otherwise, I’d have just linked to them all on TED’s site.

Enjoy and be prepared to be wowwed!!!

Learn How to Enable Windows 7’s Rotating Wallpaper Feature

Wallpapers were a great idea, unless you had one on for a long time and it might start burning in a few pixels or more into your screen.

Screen savers were invented for that reason. However, they tended to be custom made software which isn’t always to everybody’s liking.

Being a maker of wallpapers on this blog, I had posted instructions on how to make your own customized screen saver from wallpapers of your choosing (for Windows XP because I was only familiar with it at the time).

Now that I have Windows 7, though, I see it has a great new rotating wallpaper or background feature that is better than the customized screen savers. That is because you don’t have to wait for some inactivity time on your computer before it kicks in. With a screen saver, there is still a default desktop wallpaper image that is on by far the most often. With this, there isn’t.

Essentially, you put your favourite wallpapers into a folder and you tell Windows 7 which ones you’d like to use (cause you don’t have to use all of them). Then tell it if you want the order shuffled for a little randomization, and how long between each switch over. No worries. It doesn’t take up that much memory so it’s like a luxury without a cost. 🙂

Here’s how you go about enabling this feature:

  • Designate a folder for your wallpapers.
  • Find your wallpapers. I have plenty here for starters. 🙂
  • Download to your wallpapers folder.
  • Click on the Start menu.
  • Choose Control Panel
  • Click on Change Desktop Background.
  • Click on the Browse button and find your folder with your wallpapers.
  • Click the pictures you want to use, or just Select All to use them all and let them rotate through.
  • Choose your time interval below the picture window.
  • Check off Shuffle to add some randomization to your background changes.

You can always add more images later. Just go through the set of actions minus the first step to designate your folder.

Hope that helps!
