Auntie is a freeware BBC News ticker for Mac OS X. It has no relationship to the (apparently no longer supported) Mac OS 7 program of the same name, other than having the same function.Many aspects of the ticker are configurable, including font, color, opacity, and ticker speed. Clicking on a scrolling headline will take you to the associated Web page. Headlines are also listed in a dock menu to jump to any one of them.Auntie is provided free of charge because you really ought to pay attention to what's going on in the world.
