NickH and NetNewsWire

Nick Harris, my co-worker at NewsGator and Sepia Labs, writes NetNewsWire – Time to Breakup:

I need read state sync and a multiple device experience. I want to be able to click links to blog posts I see on Twitter and have them marked read in my RSS app. Really I want to spend less time dealing with read state — something I was spoiled with at NewsGator.

It’s not easy. It’s an incredibly difficult problem to solve. But it is solvable. The problem is if the solution is profitable.
