Embedded Automation Releases mNewsCenter

mNewsCenter v1 (Home Edition), an RSS reader designed for Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005, is now available from Embedded Automation's web store.

Surrey, BC - August 9, 2005

Embedded Automation has released mNewsCenter v1 (Home Edition) and made it available from their mHome web store. mNewsCenter is an RSS reader that has been specifically designed for the Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 (MCE) platform. As an RSS reader, mNewsCenter provides the capability to read blogs, listen to and watch podcasts, and view any other information source that supports the RSS protocol.

Being an MCE application, mNewsCenter can be viewed on a TV and operated with a single remote control. In addition, mNewsCenter was architected in such a way that it can also be equally enjoyed on a conventional computer monitor, using a keyboard and mouse. mNewsCenter also allows one to subscribe to an unlimited number of RSS channels which are easily managed using the Feed Editor functionality.

"We are pleased to release mNewsCenter, which we believe is an integral application to the Windows Media Center experience. mNewsCenter allows users to stay current with all of their favourite online information sources while still being able to enjoy the media center experience" said Maury Lum, Product Line Manager at Embedded Automation.

mNewsCenter is the product of a partnership between Ian Dixon Software and Embedded Automation. Ian had the initial concept for the product and is responsible for its development. Embedded Automation has assumed the full commercial rights to mNewsCenter and will be responsible for its support.
