70. News Readers and RSS

Find a website you like? If the site offers an RSS (really simple syndication) feed, subscribing is as easy as dragging the URL from your browser and dropping it into NetNewsWire (, $29.95, shown in Figure 29). Over time, NetNewsWire learns to sort articles by "attention," moving articles you're most likely to enjoy to the top of your reading list.

Figure 29. NetNewsWire makes subscribing to RSS feeds a snap and can sort posts you're most likely to enjoy to the top of the list.

If you like the clean, colorful interface of applications such as Yojimbo and Mail, you'll love Newsfire (, $18.99). Lively animations alert you to new content and "smartfeeds" track articles based on any criteria you care to define.
