Just to refresh your memory:

Touchstone is a gadget that persists on your desktop displaying news and information that you subscribe to. Initially this will be based on RSS and eventually could include all types of alerts/information from various programs.

In this current release, Touchstone looks like a news ticker (like the one you see at the bottom of news shows/stations on TV). Eventually there will be additional ‘visualizations’ such as a ‘sidebar’ version, various ‘alerts’ that popup when important changes occur etc.

You can find out more at the website linked above.
