Washington Post Reviews News Aggregators

Leslie Walker reviews a number of desktop news aggregators in today's Washington Post. A lot of this article explains to people who are not amid the blogosphere what a "news aggregator" is. This is not a bad idea, considering the fact that she is writing for a mainstream media outlet:

These are more like a souped-up table of contents to all your favorite Web sites, with long lists of headlines that are automatically updated at regular intervals. You scan the headlines and click for more information on those that interest you.

Walker discusses NewzCrawler in some detail but also mentions Amphetadesk, FeedReader, Headline Viewer and Radio UserLand.
