NetNewsWire has published their NetNewsWire RSS Clipboard Formats. What this allows is dragging and dropping newsfeeds and headlines in between supporting apps.

What I'd like to do is to be able to drag-and-drop newsfeeds from NetNewsWire or PulpFiction, to name two, onto SpyTrack to get newsfeeds.

Also - I'm trying to determine if the Geo-Enabled RSS viewer needs to be split off from SpyTrack. Or somehow as an optional add-in module. Adding the RSS feed support is really complicating the original purpose behind SpyTrack. But then again, having all your info in one app/window seems beneficial.
