…NetNewsWire is perfect?


On a daily basis, NetNewsWire is the program that I use to keep this blog running as I sort through a thousand plus stories per day via RSS.

Thankfully, it never disappoints, and NewsGator has done an excellent job of making everything work the way it should.

Shawn Blanc agrees, and has posted a great run through of the features that set NNW apart, so if you’ve got a Mac, and you read blogs by RSS (as you should) then definitely give NetNewsWire a try.

It’s that good.

Check out the video for some speedy action; and I must say, it actually looks like a blast.

Now where did I put that nailgun…
