I read TUAW a couple of times a day, and they routinely blog about a program called NetNewsWire ( link: http://www.newsgator.com/NGOLProduct.aspx?ProdID=NetNewsWire ). Ultimately, I have trouble understanding the need for a standalone RSS reader. Doesn't Safari provide enough built-in support for RSS? If it doesn't, then where is the "tipping point" where Safari begins to fail and standalone readers begin to shine? Do you use an RSS reader; if so, which one? Is it really worth it? How many feeds are you subscribed to? Help me, I just don't understand!
