What Is RSS?

You've probably been seeing orange or buttons more and more, not knowing for sure what they are. They're the keys to selecting your own WEB FEEDS.

RSS is currently "the newest big thing" for communicating on the Internet -- you can use it to get news feeds from CNN, CBS News, ABC News, eWeek, CNet, Slashdot, Christian Science Monitor, as well as just about anything else, including news on upcoming movies, DVD releases, your favorite band's tour updates, etc.

Once you get started, it's like having your favorite parts of the Web come to you. No need to go out and check for updates all the time.

No more bookmarks for your favorite sites, and you don't need to visit them to find out what's new --
they'll announce updates right on your RSS Reader.

"RSS" means "Really Simple Syndication." But that is just a fancy way of saying that you can keep up with all the updates to the Firewalls and Virus Protection website, Security Alert News Reporter and our Security Alert Blog postings without having to check the site every week to see "what's new."

Whenever I put up a new page ("BRAND NEW") or update an old one ("UPDATE"), I release it through RSS. 

Yes, RSS is amazing. Did I say "No e-mail. No spam". It's so easy to subscribe and unsubscribe. And you can delete the feed  if you wish. It's awesome!

And once you start, you'll soon be tracking all your other favorite interests and news in the world.
