Bring your desktop to life

This week's Download Dispatch for Mac includes My Living Desktop, OnyX, and Quinn.

Though monitor technology has long since gone beyond the need for an actual screensaver, they're still a fun addition to your desktop. My Living Desktop gives you a beautiful living ocean scene with many more scenic loops to choose from once you register. You can even make the scene act as your desktop, though we found it to be a little distracting at times.

Also this week we have the latest version of OnyX, a system utility that lets you perform maintenance tasks to keep your Mac running smoothly. Our game this week is Quinn, the made-for-Mac Tetris clone that lets you play against your friends over a network.

Don't forget to check out our iPhone apps of the week!
