My Corkboard - Interactive Desktop

Take a look at your computer. Are you one of those people that have sticky notes all over the sides and top of your computer? Or maybe you're the type that gets so involved in your work at the computer that you don't notice how much time has passed until the kids start asking "Mom, what's for dinner?" Or maybe you have always wished you could design your desktop just the way you would like. Well read on for a great idea.

The answer to your dilemma could be the My Corkboard interactive desktop program. It is loaded with features to help keep you organized and entertained while at your computer. The My Corkboard program is free and very customizable. You customize the program by using the many downloadable, auto installing add-ons packages that are available on the My Corkboard website. These add-ons are theme based (holidays, hobbies, etc.) groupings of 3D artwork and interactive objects which allow you to frequently design and redesign your My Corkboard desktop. Check out their Creepy Halloween package for October. For a more personal touch you can substitute your own artwork for the default images.

First you have a choice of desktop wallpaper, which they call Backboards. Then you pick and choose which coordinated features you would like to add to your interactive desktop. For example, there are digital sticky notes which come in several colors and styles. You can drag and drop these sticky notes anywhere on your desktop. You can also type directly onto the sticky notes without the need to open a text editor or word program. There are also To-Do lists that function in the same way as the sticky notes. But that's not all. You have your choice of animated clocks which you can program with reminder alarms. And there are also interactive calendars.

Ok, now that you are organized you need to add a little fun to your desktop. You can start with the animated desktop pets such as a parrot, fish, cat and dog. But you will also want to add that special picture of your kids and you can choose from several 3D frames. The last feature is the most fun and is called Gizmos. These Gizmos are animated graphics and some even make sounds. For example the Creepy Halloween package has animated spiders, pumpkins and luminaries. Check out the My Corkboard site for yourselves and have fun.
