If the McLaughlin Group bores you and CNN Headline News is more your speed, WorldFlash News Ticker Gold may be the news application for you. Based on your choice of about 200 RSS feeds, it displays a scrolling readout of stock quotes, weather, and the latest headlines. The demo lets you add only three feeds of your own, but we appreciated features such as stock-price alerts and keyword-based news monitoring. It's easy to drag the ticker backward or forward to read a missed headline or skip ahead. You also can mark news articles for later. Also, though the default split-pane view of the ticker is hard to read, switching to the TV-Ticker Display solves the problem. We disliked the intrusive installation process, which asks for an e-mail address and other personal information, but overall, WorldFlash News Ticker Gold is a reasonable choice for monitoring stock quotes or keeping up with a few news sites.
