The recent spate of announcements and rumors from companies like AOL, Digg, and Facebook about their own upcoming Web-based reader services are aiming to capitalize on the tech-savvy users who are fearful about how they'll sync their newsfeeds once Google shuts down Google Reader for good. And companies like Feedly, Feedbin, and a slew of others are all clamoring to be the new RSS backend. In starting over, NetNewsWire 4 appears to have thrown away everything up to and including the sync, which may be a deal breaker for heavy news readers, for now.
NetNewsWire 4 will cost $20 when it does ship, though thrifty early birds who choose to pre-order now can snag it for $10.
