Your birthday news is a light hearted program for creating a newspaper with news from around the world for the day you were born.

The first thing I noticed about this program was even the installer had a different look to it which surprised me and was kinda nice, it looked a little bit like old paper. When you start Your Birthday News you are presented with the options for your paper. You can set it to only display U.S. News for that day, or international news. Then you can enter your name and even name your newspaper just by typing in the appropriate boxes.

Then you can go a step farther by picking a headline and entering a personal message. Once all this is done, you press the preview button and your paper is generated. There were some interesting facts and some obvious funny things thrown in as well.

One thing I learned was back on my birthday in 1977, gas was 66 cents a gallon. All together the program was okay, I was a bit annoyed by the fact I couldn't print my paper in the trial version but the program let me test it enough to get the idea that it works. If you want a program like this you should go ahead and pick it up, its easy to use and the price isn't too bad.
