Has anyone else out there tried newsfeeds on their PCs?

PC World‘s recent article on must-have utilities included a free news feed program called FeedReader. It’s a simple program that lets you view newsfeeds published using the RSS standard. Basically, it’s XML-delivered news headlines and the program links to the full story. One web article even suggests that RSS will replace email, which will soon be rendered useless by viruses and spammers.

I like it. It’s like getting personalized news from different sources on a variety of subjects. You can use listings from Syndic8 to get a list of newsfeed URLs. For example, my geeky self receives newsfeeds about science fiction, chess, and of course, our beloved mother stock symbol.
