One of the big movies this fall has been no surprise, the latest Disney animated flick, Frozen. Regardless if you saw it in theaters or if you have opted to plat the ‘wait for DVD’ game, you may want a few still images to use as your computer wallpaper.
This new theme packs together ten of those images together. “ The movie is loosely inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale The Snow Queen and tells the story of a fearless, yet optimistic princess who sets off on an epic journey alongside a rugged mountain man, his loyal reindeer, and a hapless snowman to find her sister, the Snow Queen, whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom in eternal winter”, the developer describes.
All of the wallpapers are 1920 x 1200 pixels resolution and the theme is compatible with Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows RT.

Editor’s Note: Every Saturday Morning we take a departure from our normal tech coverage for a little internet video fun. We take a look at extreme sports, hot movie trailers, stop-motion animation, and pretty much whatever cool video we happen to come across on the internet.
We are only days away from the big release — Microsoft’s next-generation gaming console, the Xbox One, rolls out the door on November 22nd. The box is more than just for games of course, its really a living room hub, featuring HDMI pass-thru and comes with a large number of entertainment apps, such as ESPN, Netflix, HBO Go, Hulu and a lot more.
But, at the end of the day, many customers are making this purchase for the games, and one of the big launch-day titles is Forza Motorsport 5. A new trailer for the racing game has been released, which you can watch below.
