Mesa Dynamics Releases Tickershock 1.1, Animated RSS Reader for Mac OS X
Washington, DC (PRWEB) January 18, 2004 — Mesa Dynamics today released
Tickershock 1.1, a significant upgrade to its animated, interactive RSS
and Atom news headline reader for Mac OS X.
Featuring scrolling crawl and billboard displays inspired by the news
displays of 24-hour cable news channels, Tickershock is a departure
from typical RSS applications that emulate web browser or email reader
environments. Tickershock pushes news headlines to the screen until
the user sees a story worth reading: a double-click on a news headline
brings up a web-enabled “News Inspector” in which a story can be
explored in greater depth.
Tickershock 2.0 features a “Timeshift” mode to quickly preview all the
stories in a news feed and introduces “Schedules,” a programmable
service for automating delivery of the news on designated timetables
(for example, getting the top headlines delivered every hour on the
hour). Other enhancements include OPML export and new display
A trial version of Tickershock is available for download at
http://www.mesadynamics.com and requires Mac OS X 10.2.8 (Jaguar) or
later. A single user license of Tickershock is available for $19.95.
