AmphetaDesk is a free syndicated news aggregator for your desktop. I just put 20 of my favorite sites’ XML feeds into it, and now I can browse all the latest posts in one spot.
I wish it had a web-based version. I suppose I could figure out how to use it on the site, since it’s Perl-based, but I’m too lazy. I’ll wait for them to tell me how to do it. Very cool tool.
