For those who don’t know, RSS is the technology behind a faster way to read websites such as FraudO. You set yourself up with a news reader and point it at all your favourite web sites. Then whenever something new appears on that website it shows you only the new parts. So instead of checking all your favourite sites each morning you get a real time display of what’s new in your world. It’s great.
If you haven’t used a news reader before head on over to google.com/reader and set yourself up. Then add a subscription to fraudo.com 🙂 There are hundreds of similar products, below are the more popular ones (they’re all FREE):
- If you use My Yahoo! then look at: my.yahoo.com/s/about/rss
- If you have a Google account then use: google.com/reader
- Bloglines: www.bloglines.com
Microsoft’s Outlook is not free; many people already have this installed so I thought I’d mention it since it has a news reader built in: office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook
