    A few things to note:
    1.) Screencaps now save as PNG
    2.) I used Automator to resize and convert the image.

    Tiger, officially, > *

    Really Simple Syndication.

    Basically it's an XML formatted feed from a site. You can use a RSS reader to grab a bunch of these XML files at the same time and that way you can see what sites you frequent have been updated without having to visit the site.

    Example: Let's say you visit sites A, B, C, X, Y, Z on a daily basis. Instead of constantly having to flip between the 6 sites to see what content has been updated or added, you "subscribe" to the RSS feed through your newsreader and the newsreader will check what sites have been updated, give you the subject, and sometimes the body of the new content.

    There's also RSS encapsulation which allows you to deliver files inside of the feed. Theoretically, let's say you run visit a BitTorrent tracker and you subscribe to a feed (lets say the Aqua Teen Hunger Force feed), everytime a new torrent is posted your newsreader would pick up the torrent file and automatically start downloading the torrent to your desktop. There's something like this becoming very popular called podcasting. RSS is a boon for independent content developers.

    Check out NetNewsWire from Ranchero Software (www.ranchero.com) for what is, in my opinion, the best newsreader on any platform.
