Email came from NewsGator regarding NetNewsWire, until now my favorite RSS reader. Future versions of NetNewsWire will only sync with Google Reader and not with NewsGator or MobileMe. And come with advertising. Why? NewsGator needs to make money to support what amounts to a free service.
Macworld’s Rob Griffiths:
The main reason I’m now looking to replace NetNewsWire is that, going forward, syncing across multiple Macs will only be possible via Google Reader. In the present version, sync was available via NewsGator or MobileMe (.Mac); after testing both services, I settled on syncing via MobileMe.
This is not good news. I really don’t want to ride with Google Reader. NetNewsWire was a superb product. Is there an alternative?
