Newzie serves up your RSS feeds and more in a good-looking, easy-to-use tabbed interface.

It faces much competition from other good, free news readers, but Newzie easily imports feeds from other programs and is worth trying out.

When you first start out, you can select feeds from a Newzie list, monitor Internet Explorer favourites, or import feeds from an existing OPML file. OPML files are the standard for importing and exporting precious feed lists, and we were able to import ours into Newzie very quickly.

Newzie preserved our folders and feed organisation for its Tree view of feeds, and also offers a List view that lists colour-coded feeds according to those last updated. You can select a particular feed or folder to view it on a tabbed-display to the right of the feed list, which sits in a bar on the left side of the window.

You can also view new posts in an easily digestible slideshow view, or opt for a minimised 'Today' panel. Mouseover a post in the Today panel for a description, or click it to bring up the post in your browser.

In the regular program interface, selecting a particular post from a feed view brings it up in its own tab. Or you can right-click the post and select an option to view it in your web browser.

Newzie sports a number of other options, such as a Post Sweeper that can get rid of old posts according to your specifications, or an option to monitor non-RSS web pages for changes.

Tom Pope

Dynabook Portégé X30L-G

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

Tom Sellers

MSI P65

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

Lolita Wang

MSI GT76

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

Christopher Low

Brother RJ-4230B

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
