    I'm trying to find a news widget. One where I can enter a bunch of RSS feeds, and have them all display in a nice clean interface. I want it to be one widget, not 5 or 6 widgets that are each specific to one site.

    Right now I use OneQube and it's (sadly) the best I can find, but I have to re-enter the RSS feeds on each reboot, and I got sick of that after one reboot.

    Does anyone know of a suitable widget for my tastes?

    Anything wrong with the standard News-reader included with your dashboard? Otherwise, I would check Apple's widget directory.

    What's the standard news reader included with OS X? and I haven't been able to find anything in Apple's widget directory. I may end up having to use dashcode and make my own :-\

    Well, I'm not sure if this applies to your system, but when I installed OS X, it already had a news reader in my dashboard by default. It allows me to add rss-feeds from any site and view all the news in one widget. I don't use it but it seems pretty stable.

    If you don't have it, you can get it here.

    I didn't know about that either, Vinnie_vw. Thanks for the tip.

    Works great.
