A company called Attensa is introducing a a public preview of its first RSS reader client, Attensa for Outlook 0.96 during the Gnomedex 5, happening in Seattle.
Attensa for Outlook is an RSS reader that brings up-to-the-minute information and content from Websites, blogs and Podcasts directly into Microsoft Outlook. It's the first RSS news aggregator for Outlook that lets you use a toolbar in Firefox or Microsoft Internet Explorer, to easily add and manage RSS news feeds and subscriptions from Websites and blogs. Users can publish information from emails and news feed articles directly to their blogs or wikis without exiting Outlook and loading their browser. It is also the only Outlook RSS reader that will automatically load audio Podcast files into iTunes and Windows Media Player playlists.
Users can add RSS news feed subscriptions to Outlook from a Toolbar in Microsoft Internet Explorer Tool or Firefox, automatically publish content from e-mail and RSS news articles and more. The software automatically delete read and unread subscriptions on a schedule you define.
For you guys with huge lists (mine is a small one, with "only" 400 RSS feeds - and counting), the program can import OPML files and news feed subscriptions from other RSS readers.
The Gnomedex is organised by Chris Pirillo. Oh, I am missing some good stuff at the Gnomedex this year, but since this is my first month working full time on Geekzone I decided to wait a bit more before going overseas - at least I am fully established. I am sure people will have lots of networking opportunities and new announcements there.
