In The Know (ITK) is a Widget designed for the Dashboard environment of Mac OS X. It enables you to stay on top of the latest news from your favorite RSS feeds in an efficient and unobtrusive manner, satisfying even the most voracious appetite for information.

Here are some key features of "In The Know Standard Edition":
Support for an unlimited number of feeds in either RSS or RDF format.
Resizable window for viewing flexibility.
Simple drag and drop interface for adding and removing feeds.
Scrollable feed list sorted alphabetically to simplify browsing.
Scrollable article list sorted by publication date displayed in local time.
Expand and collapse headlines for efficient browsing and reading.
Speaks feed headlines using your Mac's built-in TTS (text-to-speech) capabilities.
Automatically updates news in the background to keep your information "fresh".

The deluxe edition also includes the following features:
Flags new articles since the last refresh, allowing you to quickly discriminate between "fresh" and "stale" news.
Automatically speaks new headlines after updating your feeds, allowing you to keep updated without even accessing Dashboard. (Yes, this news reader can actually "read" you the news!) This occurs in the background so you can continue to perform other tasks on your Mac.

What's New:
Fixed a problem that could result in certain feeds not being refreshed properly.
Minor interface enhancements.
