News Anchor is the revolutionary feed reader available exclusively for the Mac. Unlike other RSS readers that simply copy the design of e-mail applications, News Anchor presents web feeds as a television-like news show using the Mac’s voice system. With News Anchor, you can now enjoy news feeds with your breakfast and don’t need to worry about spilling food on your keyboard.

* One-click, hands-free operation. News Anchor relieves you from needing to use the mouse or keyboard to get to the next article in your reading list
* Apple Remote support – control playback with your Mac’s infrared remote
* Off-line operation – News Anchor can present the news even when your Internet connection is not active
* Instant-on and always ready – News Anchor can update its data in the background even while it is not running, therefore you can always enjoy the latest news immediately on launching the application
