  • “RSS feeds are a spam-free, quick and efficient way to read news and weblogs. To get the most out of newsfeeds, you need a powerful aggregator, though, that lets you organize, search, categorize and use news items just like emails.” —About.com

  • “RSS feeds are a way to keep tabs on news sites, blogs or anyone else

    publishing in the abbreviated notification-oriented format, eliminating

    the need to revisit websites throughout the day and manually scan for

    new content.”  —Time Magazine Tech

  • What’s all this stuff on my computer screen? Where did the

    pictures go? —Norma Savio
