Since we added this program to our catalog in 2006, it has already reached 892 downloads, and last week it achieved 0 downloads.

Tickershock is a slick program that will require less storage than many programs in the section Internet software.

The current version of the software is 1.3 and the latest update was on 1/16/2006. It's available for users with the operating system Mac OS X and previous versions, and it is only available in English.

Inspired by the tickers of 24-hour cable news, Tickershock is an RSS, RDF and Atom news reader that displays news feeds anywhere on your desktop in a animated crawl or billboard display.

Tickershock is a departure from typical RSS applications that emulate traditional web browser or email reader environments. Focusing on the "push" nature of the technology, Tickershock aims to be a passive experience – but only until you decide a headline is worth exploring: a double-click on a news headline brings up a "News Inspector" (or your default browser) from which you can explore a story in greater depth.

And since it's optimized for performance, Tickershock requires a fraction of the CPU time used by more conventional stock and news tickers, freeing you to work but keep an eye on the news all the time.
