Trexar Releases MacHeadlines 1.7 -- Trexar Technologies today released MacHeadlines 1.7, an update to the product previously known as NewsTicker. Much like Trexar's MacTuner and WeatherTracker, MacHeadlines provides a dedicated interface to information from the Web, in this case scrolling headlines, stock prices, and other information in a highly customizable window. Click a headline to load the associated article in your Web browser. MacHeadlines comes pre-configured with some common news sites, and you can add your own (including TidBITS). MacHeadlines requires System 7.5.1 or later with Open Transport 1.1 or better. MacHeadlines is $20 shareware; the evaluation version expires after 20 days. [ACE]

But how do you determine how much data your Mac has transferred? Open VirusBarrier X6's Traffic window to see both current and cumulative traffic, and you can also create warnings when your data usage - incoming, outgoing, or both - exceeds an amount you specify.
