I have rediscovered RSS. The past few months I have been inundated at work and accessing my news feeds through the klunky Google reader just wasn't making the cut as a priority.
Last night I went to the NewsGator web site to purchase NetNewsWire (NNW), which I had used previously and liked. To my pleasant surprise NNW is now free and synchronizes nicely with NewsGator. I was also able to get the NewsGator feed working quickly on my iPhone, a nice bonus.
I whole-heartedly agree with Nick Bradbury's post "Why Use a Desktop RSS Reader". I would add one more item to the list of why use a desktop RSS reader: a cleaner user interface.
