…Times turns your RSS into a newspaper?

Times

Times is “a new type of newsreader for Mac OS X Leopard”.

    By rethinking the way you read news, we’ve created the best possible news experience straight from the ground up.

Instead of treating your RSS feeds like emails, Times is designed to present them like a newspaper, with headlines and photos from a variety of sources to guide your way.

Times LogoLike a newspaper, Times allows you to separate feeds into their own areas, create pages for different subjects, and more.

Times also shows the entire article within the program, and formats them all the same for easy reading.

Ready to give RSS a try, but aren’t quite ready to give up your newspaper just yet?

Then Times just might be the perfect solution.

App Icons

Twitter introduced the world to the idea, but lifestreaming hasn’t quite taken off yet; though if SXSW has anything to do with it, that’s all about to change.

Lifestreaming is “an online record of a person’s daily activities, either via direct video feed or via aggregating the person’s online content such as blog posts, social network updates, and online photos.”

Basically, lifestreaming sites take everything you do online during the day and compacts it onto one page so that your friends can quickly and easily keep up with what you’re doing.

It’s also one of the hottest areas for development right now, with plenty of companies trying to be the next big thing. For a rundown of some of the top ones, check out ReadWriteWeb’s list of 35 Ways to Stream Your Life, and see if this lifestreaming thing is right for you.

Copywriting is new to me, so I’ll be interested to see how I do in the contest.
