Hmmmm.
I'd really really like a big 80's graphic equalizer screensaver for the
Squeezebox G!

The squeezebox really doesnt have the capability to display anything
useful in terms of artwork. In fact I really hope that any sort of
visualisations are a long way down the dev list.

Personally i find any sort of flashing lights distracting when
listening to music (they remind me of big 80's graphic equalizers) .
All the visualisations on iTunes and the rest are impressive for 5
minutes then just become annoying. Very nice to project on the wall
of a club but i dont want it in the corner of my eye when i'm having
dinner (my media server is in the kitchen). and one of the best
things for me about Softsqueeze is that in fullscreen mode it presents
a simple, informative screen about what is playing without being
distracting. My only requests would be for blue text rather than
green and smoother text.

Bah. Humbug.
