San Francisco, California – (The Hosting News) – December 12, 2005 – RSS software developer, Attensa, Inc., has introduced
the 1.0 Beta version of its first RSS reader client, Attensa for Outlook 1.0 and
is also demonstrating Attensa Online, a new, free web-based RSS application, at the
Syndicate Conference in San Francisco.
Attensa for Outlook and
Attensa Online use Attensa’s unique AttentionStream article level
synchronization that connects desktop, web and mobile RSS reader clients so
articles read, organized and deleted are kept up to date no matter where they
With Attensa for Outlook and Attensa Online users can easily manage RSS feeds and articles from any computer with an Internet connection. With AttentionStream synchronization every action from subscribing to new feeds, updating articles, reading and deleting articles, to creating categories and adding tags will be synchronized in Outlook and on a personal, privacy-protected web page at Attensa Online. Users can now manage all the latest information with no more wasted time wading through duplicate content no matter where they are accessing and reading their feeds.
Attensa’s AttentionStream technology is designed to help people cut through information overload by delivering fewer and more relevant RSS articles. By analyzing AttentionStreams, including the obvious and not so obvious ways people consume information, new possibilities emerge to prioritize and recommend higher value content to users while cutting down on useless and duplicate information. Attensa’s unique lightweight AttentionStream enables fast updating of subscriptions at the article level, frequent synchronizations across multiple RSS clients and near real-time analytics to provide prioritized, more relevant articles.
According to Craig Barnes, CEO of Attensa, ”RSS is a fantastic new communication tool, but it isn’t helping with the information fire hose. In fact, RSS only increases the flow and makes it worse. The new RSS clients we are introducing at Syndicate are the first step in using Attensa AttentionStream technology to turn the RSS fire hose of information into a drinking fountain.”
Attensa Online is a free online RSS service that can be accessed anywhere on any computer. Attensa Online is an AJAX web based application that works like a dedicated RSS reader application to make keeping on top of RSS news and information easy. Subscriptions and articles load quickly and marking articles as read and deleting articles is easy.
Resizable panes and multiple views let users create an RSS workspace that is flexible and intuitive. Options for displaying articles include headline only, headline with one-sentence introductions, headlines with first paragraphs or complete articles. Users view the article source Web page without opening a new browser window or tab.
