3... It's a Magic Number

Saturday, 27 December 2008 10:03 by JRBenning

It's been a long road, but we finally released version 3.0 yesterday (Christmas Eve).  I'd like to thank all those who helped test the Beta and offered feature advise throughout the development process.   Our main goal was to make this version more FUN.  I'm proud to say, "Mission Accomplished!"

Our previous versions served us well and did exactly what we needed... They protected our computers and files, while giving our children a place to launch approved programs and websites.  But where Peanut Butter PC 2.x was a way-point to children's edutainment, Peanut Butter PC 3.0 is a destination in its own right. 

We've added so many fun things, from animated characters on themed desktops, to multimedia support.  My kids (4, 5 1/2 and 7) can't get enough of our new video player.   

We've downloaded their favorite videos from totlol.com and shared family movies.  I think the simple interface (just click to change movies) makes it perfect for all ages.  Oh, and here's an undocumented features...  You can download YouTube videos, too.  Just place the YouTube URL in the textbox on the Videos tab and have at it.

We have a couple more undocumented features that I'll save for my next blog entry.  Hopefully I'll have more time to write in the new year Smile.

But for now, let me close by wishing you all a very safe and happy holiday season.

The Power of the Press (for Kids!)

Friday, 26 October 2007 03:28 by JRBenning

Did we overlook an important feature or were we just diligently protecting your inkjet cartridges from a frontal assault? Well, we’ll never say… But, thanks to popular request, our latest release of Peanut Butter PC (v2.2.1) now features printing from the Peanut Butter Browser. The privilege is set at the child level, so you can decide who should and who should not have access to your printer.

By default, the printing functionality is turned off, so if you don’t want the feature when upgrading (get the patch here) do nothing. But, if you would like one or more children to have access to the printer, simply open the Settings Window, select the Kids tab, highlight a child and click [Kid Options…].

Because Peanut Butter Browser takes many of its queues from your Internet Explorer settings, you can go there to change the browser’s behavior (e.g. whether or not to print background colors and images).

Name Brand Software at Bargain Prices

Monday, 1 October 2007 13:56 by JRBenning

Here at Peanut Butter Software, we are always buying the latest children’s software for compatibility testing with our products. In our travels we’ve found quality software in the most unlikely places. Namely, “off-price” retails like T.J. Maxx and Marshalls. Most people think of these stores as resellers of clothing and house goods that department stores couldn’t sell. But, they also have a great selection of children’s toys, books and, of course, software.
