RSS, Why?
Authored by: BeezelNut RaRa on Feb 06, '06 02:08:56AM

If you use NetNewsWire, you to scan hundreds of headlines in a few minutes; skip slow loading web pages (containing irrelevant info) and skip thousands of ads. So RSS is for people who want pure content quickly. If you use Safari for RSS - I'm not sure what the point is really.

RSS is also cool cuz it powers podcasts. Apple also now serves their tech mailing lists as RSS, which can cut down on lots of email. Our ISP uses it for maintenance alerts. Some people also use it for comments, ie. you post a question to OS X Hints and subscribe to an RSS feed for your question. Anyone responds, you know it.
