    So, wtf are they. i hear everyone talking about them, and i am so confused. I think they are like radio stations, but i'm not sure?

    Any one have any good links? And, do they play through safari, iTunes, or a 3rd party software company? Are they free?

    So lost
    Thanks
    Peter

    RSS Really Simple Syndication
    You ever gone to CNN.com's main page and then about an hour later it's updated. RSS is a lot like that.
    This might help answer some of your questions http://www.library.uiuc.edu/scholcomm/whatisrss.htm

    In Safari click on the RSS button in the address bar to see the RSS feed for that web site.
    In Firefox there will be an orange button in the status bar.

    You should see one for the forums here. It'll list a number of recent (created or replied to) topics you can do read, and from time to time it'll be updated with other topics.
