"You can download the application along with source code (both VB.NET and C#) here. Though this application, created by Mark Frydenberg at Bentley University, is for a school, you can easily replace the logo, links to RSS and web sites in the xml files to make it your own and publish it to Microsoft marketplace. The source code is available under CDDL. Happy Coding!
