Announcing SushiReader 1.0.0, an application that I've build for news junkies like me.

SushiReader is a simple river-of-news style RSS reader for the busy news junkie. You can specify priority levels for your subscriptions so that important news stories are sorted at the head of the queue, which you can read earlier. Keywords can also be specified to further rank individual news stories' importance.

SushiReader requires Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard), and is available for free.

Review: Now X Calendar And Contact Manager

Jeffery Battersby, Macworld

Now X, once the standard for Mac contact management and calendaring, is a program that doesn't rise anywhere near the level of its predecessor. Poorly documented, occasionally buggy, and often slow, Now X is unlikely to be a viable replacement for whatever contact and calendar application is your current favorite.
