Ever heard of Widgets? I first heard of them at the Click Convention last year, what they do is read RSS feeds and display them nicely, well the other night I was looking on one of my fav sites Knox's Korner (http://www.knoxskorner.com/ ) and they had just released a Widget for their website to read news but this was only available for MAC OS (which sucks as most home users have Windows - view the Mac OS version http://www.knoxskorner.com/dropbox/screen1.png ) and so I thought I would attempt a RSS reading program. I used the same graphics as the Knox one in an attempt to mimic as close as I can, and well, I did it!

This widget is a small program which allows you to keep up to date with news, it runs off a RSS feed on Knox's Korner and will tell you if there is any fresh news to read!

Made in just one night, I think its pretty cool! Take a look

Mac OS X widgets are just cleverly disguised bits of HTML code, or so I'm told. But Microsoft are fighting back with the most obvious ripoff ever - "gadgets" are going to be included in Windows Vista.

No ripple effect

Wong; they're XML and other jazzy stuff. they need to be written in XTools though. funnily enough.

... refresh news? So it isn't automatically updated? that could be a nifty feature.

I would suggest adding in a refresh feature. It shouldn't be too difficult
