My Personal Feeds Made Pretty on Times for Mac OS X

Popped in Twitter while encoding a video and saw Steve Rubel’s link to Times, an RSS feed reader like no other. I downloaded the 14 day demo and exported my OPML from Vienna, my default reader to Times.

First impressions – IT’S PRETTY! Times is an RSS reader by Acrylic that allows you to read your feeds like you would a newspaper. All your feeds are prettified into a NY Times like layout with thumbnails and scroll bars. it’s actually sort of like a combination between your feed reader and the WordPress Revolution theme.

The application costs USD $30.00. Not sure if I’d be willing to shell out that much money for a feed reader when I can more or less get the same experience with something that’s free. So yeah, $30.00 for ambiance.

This and the upcoming Delicious Library 2 makes me wanna upgrade to Leopard already. But looking at the prices, that’s when I think otherwise. Hehe.
