I personally hate the term "news aggregator", as it's a
not-terribly-accessible word for an application that simply pulls
mutiple data sources into a single location.  I'd say that the terms
"news aggregator" and "news reader" are interchangable.  The way items
are displayed in the application is simply a matter of design.
