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
