RocketNews, a web news search resource that we've mentioned many times and like a lot, is online today with a new beta version of their desktop-based news search tool, Rocket Desktop 1.1. (Windows only). It's a free download.
The app (about 3.5MB) sits quietly in your system tray. A click and you now have a search box to access the RocketNews database of more than 16,000 sources. Titles of articles are listed in the app window and a click opens a viewer to read the full text. You can also email or bookmark the link from here. A right-click on the icon allows you toggle the number of results displayed and the time from of the search (past two days to 30 days). A link to download the Rocket News Desktop app is located on this page.
