1. Ode to NNW 2.1

    I just wanted to give a shout out to the one application I probably could no longer live happily without… NetNewsWire.

    I don’t know much about other news readers, since NewsFire stopped being free, and about a day with the Google News reader (eh) I haven’t touched another reader. What’s more, I have zero desire for another reader. I liked it so much I bought it. At the time I was only using the lite version, which is still free, but i wanted to send some money to Brent to encourage his development efforts. I took the pro app, and come version 2, I was sure glad I had it… the syncing of news is invaluable. And version 2 was free for purchasers of version 1. That impressed me.

    But then, today I read this…

    (version 2.1 is) a free upgrade. In fact, existing NetNewsWire users will get two years of free upgrades plus a free subscription to NewsGator.

    Damn. Thanks Brent. Again.

    He says it’s mainly going to be a maintenance release, plus NewsGator syncing… but he claims the speed is increasing. This is great, because my only qualms came from the crankiness of the syncing… and the lack of speed. I figured it was due to my over-use of the program… over 300 feeds, lots of tabs… but he’s testing with a private tester’s 634 tabs. Alright!
