Buy NewsFire, get Inquisitor Free

This weekend only, if you buy NewsFire, the most beautiful RSS newsreader on the Mac, you will get a free license for Inquisitor, the instant search extension for Safari that makes searching the web just like using Spotlight.

Together, these two programs will transform your internet experience. This is a rare opportunity to get two top-notch applications for the price of one (saving 25%). Don’t procrastinate – you only have two days!

UPDATE: It’s over. Thanks!

Leopard Compatibility Updates

The recent developer preview of Leopard created some issues for both Inquisitor and NewsFire. Now that I’m back from WWDC, I can release this pair of updates to address the issues.

Inquisitor has been updated to version 2.6.2. The changes are limited to Leopard compatibility and need not be installed unless you are running Mac OS X 10.5.

NewsFire 1.4 has been updated to build 68. In addition to Leopard compatibility, 1.4 (v68) tweaks smart rules somewhat, by adding “Starts With” (prefix) and “Ends With” (suffix) string rules. Unless you are using Mac OS X 10.5 or want these string rules there is no particular need to upgrade.

wwdc thoughts

Some very quick, improperly thought through thoughts on WWDC:

– RSS in Mail?  It wasn’t in the keynote, but the webpage talks about it.  Strange how Apple’s waffling on RSS – should it be in Safari? Mail? Dashboard?  When Safari got RSS it was part of the trifecta of top features in Tiger (Spotlight, Dashboard, Safari RSS), yet Mail doesn’t even get a mention.
– Time Machine.  It’s an awfully elaborate UI for something that probably shouldn’t be used that often.  I use Backup for file security, and have yet to find a reason to restore anything.  “Undo” works well enough for me as a safety net for stupidity, but maybe that’s because I have a 5-minute attention span.
– Spaces is pretty cool.
– Top Secret features?  As mentioned in the keynote, there’s stuff yet to come.  I really hope there are some killer A-list features because I’m not overwhelmed just yet.
