What is RSS

Hey!! You may have been seeing those little orange RSS or XML buttons around the Internet. Have you ever  wondered what's that?

Woww!!! It's "the next big thing" !!!

You can use it to get newsfeeds from CNN or BBC, as well as just about anything else, including news on upcoming movies, DVD releases, your favorite musician's tour updates, etc.
