BotBox News Monitors are agents that get you news from various
news sources on the Internet (or an intranet).
Page Update Monitors
Page Update Monitors are agents that monitor web pages for different
types of updates, such as that text has been changed or that a
new link has been added.
RSS Feed Monitor
The RSS Feed Monitor makes it easy to read RSS based news feeds.
Search Monitors automatically search the web using your favorite
search engines and report when new web pages matching your keywords
News filters enable you to filter out the most important news. You can
either color the important news or let your agents ignore the news
that is not important.
Your agents bring in the news and updates into "profiles" that contain
settings for monitored sources, filters, colors, etc. These profiles
are shown as information windows. You can, in the
Standard version, export the profiles and later import them to another
BotBox Personal Assistant. This lets you share your chosen stream
of information with colleagues and friends.
