RSS News Aggregator

Trying to come up with something that puts all my news in one spot. All the news I get off the web anyway (is there really any other source for news?) Probably going to end up using a combination of the following tools:

Peerat: this looks like the winner so far. It's cross platform --runs anywhere Python runs. The results can be integrated into my web site, though I'm not sure I will be doing that. Guess I'm looking for my own version of Userland Radio which I find difficult to setup and use. Maybe all this will be easier when there is an Internet Exploder for Linux...

Amphetadesk: (Windows and Mac only) this is pretty cool. Kind of a poor man's Userland Radio. The blurb from the frontpage:

"...AmphetaDesk is a news aggregator - it sits on your desktop, downloads the latest news that interests you, and displays them in a quick and easy to use (and customizable!) webpage. With thousands of channels for selection, AmphetaDesk can shave hours off your day..."

One thing that bugs me about it is there seems to be no way to get it to automatically update the news. It does it after you start the thing up. No big deal if you're only looking at a few web sites but since I'm trying to get a snapshot of the entire web while having my morning coffee... well, it's a bummer! I would recommend this one for people that are stuck using Windows (I guess that would be most everybody.) I did run across another tool: Newzcrawler. But couldn't test it. Apparently it uses some Internet Exploder components and since that's not installed here it wouldn't work. Maybe the Linux challenged among you can check it out and report back?

Sitescooper: been using this since I had a Palm Pilot (now Visor) to scoop all the news and make it portable. I'll probably continue doing so. Nothing like reading the news on you handheld. Many scoff at this but someday (sooner than later) they'll be reading their news on a similar device.
