Headline feed gadget not updating
One great example of this is Feed Notifier, an RSS feed app Feed Notifier rests in your taskbar, and you can add feeds to it simply by right clicking on the icon and selecting “Add Feed”.
It’s a tad annoying that you have to add feeds individually – there’s no way to import feed lists – but this is a small drawback to deal with given how useful the app is once you’ve got it loaded up with your favorite feeds.
As you can see below, the feed display box is semi-transparent, and it has forward and reverse controls, so that you can scroll through the feed title list if you want to do it manually.
It’s also cool that you can assign a different box border color, depending on the feed that you’re adding.
Feed Notifier actually goes out and identifies the Feed Title and Feed Link details and autofills the next form for you.
All you have to do is tweak the polling speed and the display box border color if you want, and then finish the Add Feed wizard.
You might find this handy if you want to show off one of your other blogs, or one of your favorite blogs, in your sidebar.

Adding feeds is as simple as right clicking on the ticker, going to “File” and either importing a feed list file (OPML), or opening individual feeds.
The beauty of this is that you can use the various section feeds from news sites like CNN, and totally tailor the type of news that gets displayed on your desktop RSS ticker tape display.
