What does RSS do? How does it make things “easier” for me?
RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is a publishing format that pushes headlines from all your favorite Web sites to you, rather than requiring you to visit all your favorite web sites multiple times per day. Simply put: whenever new information of interest to you is posted on a site that you like, you can choose to have that information sent to a central hub of your choosing… in real-time. From this hub, you can read all of the headlines of interest to you from all of your favorite sites.
