Chirp Screen Saver Keeps up with your Friends
 
Buy screen saver from Amazon Cyber Monday and Black Friday Now
 
If you and your friends are heavy users of social networking sites and you want an easier way of keeping up with their posts and new content Chirp is here to help. Chirp is a screensaver that displays content from your customized list of social networking profiles.

As your friend writes new blog posts, uploads new photos or video the chirp screen saver will display the content on your computer. "Screen savers run on hundreds of millions of computers, yet there's been very little innovation over the past decade in the user experience," said James Slavet of Greylock Partners. "chirpscreen cleverly transforms the screen saver into a tool for staying more closely connected to your personal network. This product is a very promising first step in Chirp's roadmap of deeper social applications."

The screen saver also allows you to interact directly with the content and the content providers directly from the screensaver itself. The public beta version of Chirp is available now at Chirp.com. Chirp has the financial backing of some notable firms including Greylock Partners, Jeff Clavier's SoftTech VC, and angel investors Reid Hoffman (Chairman and founder of LinkedIn), Jay Adelson (CEO of Digg), and Dave Samuel (founder of Spinner.com and Grouper).

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
