Have you been seeing those little orange RSS or XML buttons around on the internet, and wondering what they are?
RSS (or Really Simple Syndication) is the great new way to get news feeds from the BBC or CNN, or just about anything else, including news on the latest films and DVD releases, your favourite band's tour updates...
It's like having your favourite parts of the internet come to you, with no need to go out and check for updates all the time. When you subscribe to a website with an RSS feed, you can keep up-to-date without constantly having to check the site.How do I subscribe to Altered Art News?
