NY Times Reader

NY Times - First Look Blog: "Next week we'll be introducing Times Reader 2.0. This version is powered by Adobe AIR and will run equally well on Windows , Mac and Linux computers. With this latest release, Times Reader resembles the printed paper even more closely, and it updates every five minutes with the latest news from the Web." - Here's a great example of AIR done right. The application looks fantastic. Now, question is, will someone go out and create a generic RSS reader that can be crafted to look like this by other newspapers. Then when you subscribe to their RSS feed it also includes some extra bits that tell the reader how to skin itself so it's branded properly for the newspaper.

I think the NewsGator folks better get on the ball. Brent, Nick, are you listening?
