Hey all,

Just wondering if there is a news.com.au widget anywhere?

Mayby it is something "iSlayer" and/or "Marc" can work on seeing they are the Masters :D It would be fantastic if something was made, I visit news.com.au heaps!

There are RSS reader widgets, I don't know if news.com.au (stupid Murdoch run crap) has an RSS feed, but if they do, you can just whack that into the RSS widget :)

news.com.au doesnt have feed to my knowledge.

However www.abc.net.au has a range of news related feeds including breaking(just in).

Yes, yes it does.

Under "Editions" on the left side of the page (requires registration).

Google news also has an RSS feed. Can widgets use feeds without permission?

I'd say if an RSS feed exists for public use then I wouldn't see a widget as being too different to a browser. It's not like you're not giving credit to the source.

Sorry adamjc, we haven't done one yet. Thanks for the compliment though :)

We have heaps of new widgets coming soon...

I was just wondering if anything was around.

Thanks again.

Get the feeds here (http://headlinefeeds.news.com.au/index.jsp) and load them in your choice of RSS widget.
