Magnetic Time has announced the latest version of their uber cool RSS feed audiozer, iNewscaster, and it sort of freaks me out. The service is cool because it extracts the text from your RSS feeds and then ‘audiozes’ them into MP3 files so you can listen to them anywhere you want. The part that freaks me out is the voice delivering the news. It’s really creepy and it makes me want to hide under my desk. Anyways, it’s a very cool service and if you’re not a desk jockey then this is something you might want to look into. iNewscaster will run you $29.99, but that only drops the MP3 files to your desktop. If you want to transfer them to your iPod or phone you’ll have to dish out an additional $9.99. You do realize a mere $40 is worth it don’t you? You get to hear our bumbling rants from a creepy voice.
