macminer.com sets out to make your quest for Mac-related news simpler, more precise and, above all, successful. Combining the usefulness of a 24h/day news aggregator with advanced search capabilities, macminer is a powerful tool to cope with your daily information overload.
Professionals and home users alike will benefit from macminer’s unique features. Not only does macminer aggregate headlines from over 50 English-speaking news sources almost up-to-the-minute, but it also helps the reader to find what he or she is looking for. Special options include individual news portfolios which you can build from your preferred sources with a few clicks, and temporary hiding of unwanted sources (again, a single click is enough). If, for example, you’d rather not read about Software Updates, hide them by turning the respective sources off – a decision you can always undo later on. Also, searching for all of a source’s headlines is still possible at any point.
Find similar news with a click
macminer’s Find Similar feature is a real time-saver: Just click on a headline’s search symbol, a magnifier glass, and dig deep to find related news! Although Find Similar shows best matches first, it gives you a list of loosely related news as well. From there, you can go deeper. As a side option, you can search for individual key words from the original headline. macminer uses proprietary linguistic technology to find what you are looking for.
For a quick narrow-down of your news stream, macminer offers over 15 predefined filters on subjects like Apple, Mac OS X, Hardware, Test & Reviews, Software, the iPod, Security, Music, Photo & Video or Developer News. These filters can be easily accessed and bookmarked. iPod-only news, for example, are available at http://www.macminer.com/?f=ipod. In addition, you can easily define your own filter with a maximum of three search terms. In order to receive relevant headlines in a daily newsletter, subscribe to our free NewsAlert and you won’t need to search by yourself for those vital updates any more!
