I am looking for a product similar to the old Pointcast service.  I want to be able to have text and graphics pushed to a user, and when their screensaver activates, the data that I pushed would be displayed.  Pretty much just like pointcast.

Before I read you wanted a screen saver and just wanted to push info I immediately thought RSS since new Outlook and Vista and Webbrowsers all support that, but then you said screensaver so...

google RSS screensaver

Just the first 2, but I'm sure there are more free or better ones...
