Since we have a huge and readily updated array of RSS feeds, we should create more Macromedia Flash-based products which can read these feeds very easily. (BBC updated to RSS 2.0 on 14/03/05) these can be desktop products, embedded on webpages, or run on PocketPC devices.

There are many potential ways in which these could be presented. Here are just a few (see url)

Also included there is a small application which searches Yahoo! via the Yahoo! Developers API

These products can also be simply turned into desktop applications with increased functionality, for such things as 'enclosure' downloading (a la 'podcatching')
and potential for offline consumption of News too (like AvantGo - which has got worse)
