If you happen to live in Denver, you may have noticed a full-page ad in the Denver Post promoting NewsHound, a customizable RSS reader created specifically for the Denver Post by the folks at NewsGator. NewsHound – the first of our Media Platform applications – enables customers to easily read content from the DenverPost.com as well as other sites.
If you enjoy using a full-blown RSS reader like FeedDemon, then something like NewsHound probably isn’t for you. But for non-techies, it’s pretty slick since it was designed to be used without having to know anything about RSS.
Greg Reinacker has the details.

I’m trying to figure out how to ask the right question, and this is what I’ve come up with: Who designed this? I’m referring to the visual design. It’s odd to me.
I’m sorry, I should clarify: it doesn’t match the rest of their site in its appearance.
I am CEO of a tiny Canadian corporation based in Ottawa.
We are going to launch an online publishing site in the next 6 months.
Is Denver Post NewsHound a (very) simplified version of Feeddemon, styled and pre-set to go-get data from Denver Post?
Assuming it is, please can you give me some idea of the costs of delivering a similar client for us to distribute to our visitors?
By way of grovelling – we are a self-funding start-up and I own both Feeddemon and TopStyle (pretty pathetic grovelling eh?).
This is *not* urgent but I *am* interested — we were already thinking of doing a super-simple RSS reader.

i would of thought the base classes for rss retrieval are the same and just plugged into a different interface. so in theory very custimazable for different companys.
