(PRWEB) December 4, 2003
LOS ANGELES, CA (PRWEB) December 4, 2003 Â The Web has been slathered with orange buttons with XML or blue buttons with RSS on them. WhatÂs the big deal? The links behind these buttons hold the key to reading content from various favorite Web sites all in one place, a news feed reader. Copy the link that appears after clicking on the button and paste it into a news feed reader and the reader provides the latest headlines from the Web site. Where is the feed reader software for entering the feeds? What types of content can feed into it?
Lockergnome News Feeder (http://www.feedreaders.com) is ready to eat whatever links itÂs fed. This Flash-based reader is resizable to make the font larger or smaller based on the screen size for easier reading. Stay on top of the local and national news, Hollywood, weather, comic strips like Dilbert and Peanuts, and job searches. A list of Web sites offering the RSS information is available at LockergnomeÂs RSS Resource (http://rss.lockergnome.com) or Feedster (http://www.feedster.com).
Feature idea #1 Â introduce readers to the concept of RSS since itÂs still new to many and provide a diverse list of sites that offer feeds. Get all of the latest news in one spot for quick scanning rather than scouring site after site or digging through the many links in the Favorites or Bookmarks file. Instead of adding another link to the overloaded Bookmark file, add it to the feeder and let the news come to the desktop. Cover how news junkies use the tool.
Feature idea #2 Â Could feeders be the application to bring Spam to its knees? Many newsletters and emailed news are thrown into the Spam bin because of filtering or falling between the Spam email cracks. Spam and filters canÂt touch feeders. Could they also be a solution for easing information overload?
