What is RSS?
RSS is a technology that lets you subscribe to the content of a website or weblog, and then scan headlines or blurbs on new content for these sites using a news reader or aggregator. RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication, but previously stood for Rich Site Summary.
There are dozens of RSS readers available; many are offered free of charge. Some readers are available as desktop software that you download and install on your computer. Others are web-based readers that you can access on the Internet. Google lists many of the available RSS readers, and you can learn more about news readers.
I think newspapers, blogs, and magazines should all be doing audio versions. I grew up enjoying and listening to audiobooks and now I don't have the same option for the short form content that I prefer to consume.
