It's For Real! ANN REALTIME NewsBug Released To ANN Readers, Worldwide
For those of you using a windows PC, a new REALTIME News Service from the Aviation World’s DAILY News Service, the Aero-News Network (ANN), will let you know when our REALTIME, award-winning NewsFeed has been updated.
Since we update our REALTIME newsfeed dozens of times a day, this is expected to be a VERY useful utility.
The Public version is now ready for prime-time and consists of little more than a simple ZIP file with an equally simple self-installation protocol. If you have any problems, let us know and we’ll email a detailed installation protocol. This product is now being disseminated, worldwide, and a comprehensive Windows tutorial is due to be released within a few days.
When installed, you'll see a small blue and white airplane icon on the lower right hand side of your windows installation, in the system tray. If the airplane icon isn't doing anything, you're up to date on news.
BUT... when the airplane starts moving, (or making sounds that you can select from the control panel), all you have to do is click on it once to see for the NewsBug window to open to display either the newest headlines OR (depending on what you select in the user preferences) headlines and short summaries of the latest news. Click on any of the stories and you'll instantly open a separate window to the story that you just selected.
Simple. Cool. Efficient. So easy, even an aero-journalist can use it -- even Jim Campbell.
Want A "Custom" Aero-NewsBug?
In addition to the current version of the Aero-NewsBug, CUSTOM “Branded” versions will be available for major aviation associations, companies and organizations wishing for a distinctive news product for their members, customers and associates. These versions will feature Custom Logos reflecting the affiliated organization. With additional future functionality ALREADY built-in, this is now available with the first public release of the final generation of the Aero-NewsBug.
Some of the additional features we are preparing will allow for extensive customization and specialized news and information requests… in REALTIME. In other words… more cool things coming… SOON.
Public (Windows) Version: Build 24 with automatic update.
