The fact that consumers can now get their hands on equipment to download and listen to these broadcasts so cheaply means a whole world of amateur dj's and talk show hosts is about to hit cyber-airwaves.
Though you've heard rumblings about it, and people are grasping around in dark trying to get a grip on how to implement it, now you can actually plan to see and hear about widespread use of "pod casting" in very near future since a potential audience of listeners with right equipment is now set to grow.
** Associated Press Offers RSS Feeds **
The Associated Press now offers RSS feeds of their top news stories. RSS (Real Simple Syndication) makes it possible for content providers to offer instant updates to their readers without sending email.
Anyone with an RSS reader such as FeedDemon (www.feeddemon.com) can receive and read RSS feeds.
Traditionally, Associated Press marketed their services exclusively to newspapers and online sources such as Yahoo! News.
Now, by offering their RSS feeds directly to consumers at www.ap.org, Associated Press is obviously seeking to bypass online news sources and go directly to consumer.
The fact that world's oldest and largest news source has chosen to start offering content this way demonstrates quite clearly that RSS is fast coming of age as an acceptable mass-communication medium and that widespread consumer adoption is imminent.
Soon, there'll be an RSS reader on every computer desktop and use of RSS will become as widespread as email.
