TECH NEWS: Star Trek movie inspires apps

Published 05/22/2009, McClatchy-Tribune News Service

"Star Trek" memorabilia throughout the years has been huge, with everything from action figures to replicas of hand phasers, communicators and even Tricorders. I have an excellent Star Trek screen saver that I run from time to time. It's been around for a few years but in case you didn't know about it, check out the System 47 screen saver available in Windows and Macintosh versions. It emulates the LCARS (an acronym for Library Computer Access/Retrieval System) computer screen displays that were made popular on the "Star Trek Next Generation," "Deep Space Nine" and "Voyager" TV series as well as several of the more recent "Star Trek" movies. You can download the free screen saver at: www.mewho.com/system47.
