The Three Stooges Daily Desktop

Boot Camp feature for Tuesday, February 22, 2000

A comedy team born in the 1930s....on your computer desktop today. I'm Fred Fishkin with Bootcamp, a report on computers and technology. They still have a lot of fans....and they'll love what Southpeak Interactive has come up with for your PC.... The Three Stooges Daily Desktop... (sound) Oh yeah? (sound) Take this! Southpeak's Leslie Simmons...

"Fans will find screen savers, they will find sticky notes, and they will find perpetual calendars, as well as a lot of the sound effects that one would associate with, in particular, Curly and Moe. There's a wonderful aspect to the desktop that allows people who have the desktop on their computer to play Three Stooges pranks on each other."

Pranks? (sound)

"You can throw tomatoes or water balloons at someone that you might not be particularly happy with at the moment or you can send someone a bouquet of flowers that'll pop up on the screen."

You can also while away some time playing the Whack a Moe game.... (sound) The price... under fifteen dollars.
