RSS - Really Simple Syndication

Newsreader This is something i've been using for a while now... for those of you who havent tried and go to the same sites pretty often, this is a great tool - It lets you, in one window, see which sites have been updated and within that a listing of the new articles and usually a brief synopsis of the article. there's a list of windows apps in this article ... the lite versions will be free.. try it out ... you wont regret it! RSS is an acronym for Really Simple Syndication. It is what it claims to be: a quick and easy way to create and use "syndicated content" such as news headlines and announcements. Some websites (like this one) use RSS to deliver articles and article previews to readers who are simply too busy to browse to our site and dig up the content they are interested in. Other sites use RSS to alert customers of new products or upcoming events. click for more...
