‘NetNewsWire: Just What You Wanted’

Shawn Blanc on his assumed departure from NetNewsWire:

And I know I’m not the only one. This weekend a lot of us will say goodbye to an old friend. You’ll forgive me if I’m a little sentimental, but if you’ve been reading this site for longer than a day you know I’ve got an affinity for fine software.

NetNewsWire was the first client I ever got for RSS and it introduced me to the medium. With the beta of version 4, and the pre-lease price of $10, I went ahead and bought NetNewsWire 4. I am a huge fan of Fever° and Sunstroke. They are great tools for RSS, but lately when I am out and about I have found I don’t have time for RSS — it’s too much. Instead I rely on App.net and (yes) Digg.com to stay up to date on what’s going on. That’s less overwhelming and faster.

So for the moment I am using NetNewsWire 4, un-synced to the web, and just checking my feeds when I happen to be at my Mac. So far I am loving the heck out of it.
