And lastly, I want to tell you what I use to read my RSS Feeds.
First, desktop RSS Reader I use is called FeedReader. It's very similar to an email program and even makes same tah-dah sound that Outlook Express makes for a new email when a feed is updated. The best thing is...it's free, all you have to do is download and install it. Here's link:
Second, I also like to use MyYahoo. To use MyYahoo, you just have to sign up for an account at Yahoo.com, it's free. Most people already have one anyway. If you use Yahoo Mail or participate in Yahoo Groups, you already have an account. Just go to Yahoo.com, be sure you're signed in and click MyYahoo button at very top of page.
MyYahoo will let you customize your page and pulls only information you want to read. To add an RSS Feed, click on Add Content link, when you get to next page click on 'Add RSS by URL' link that's right next to 'Find' button. On resulting page you can enter RSS Feed URL. (Don't worry, video mentioned above will tell you how to get feed URL, remember, there's a link above to CNET's video). It's that simple!
Lastly, there is one other RSS Reader that I've heard great things about, it's called FeedDemon. CNet has it as one of it's top rated readers and I've talked with a few friends that say they couldn't live without it. I guess, it's worth looking at, huh? Here's link:
So, I hope now you're as curious as I was about RSS! Believe me, it's way you'll be handling all internet content you read on a regular basis, so go get started now and get a jump on your friends!
