A Better Way to Read News and Blogs

These days, if you spend enough time on the web, you’ll inevitably hear talk about RSS feeds, feed read­ers, and sub­scrib­ing to feeds talk that can seem fair­ly obscure and off-putting if you’re not already famil­iar with these terms.

If this has been your expe­ri­ence, then you should real­ly watch this short video below. This instruc­tive, even amus­ing, video uses sim­ple lan­guage and images to demon­strate how to use feeds and feed read­ers. In a mat­ter of min­utes, all of this will be demys­ti­fied, and you’ll dis­cov­er a much quick­er, more effi­cient and pow­er­ful way to access news and blog con­tent, includ­ing sto­ries from Open Cul­ture. You can sub­scribe to our feed here. And if you’re look­ing for a good feed read­er, def­i­nite­ly give Google Read­er a look.

    Get­ting blogs with pod­casts is fine, stor­ing them isn’t. My San­disk Sansa MP3 play­er needs MS Media play­er to sync, ITunes won’t recog­nise it. Media Play­er is NOT pod­cast friend­ly, giv­ing a 1000 & 1 music styles, most­ly aimed at the young, and one genre for Pod­casts. Then I found I could edit the genre, now I can actu­al­ly find cat­e­gories of pod­casts by using “genre” to sort. A messy fix and I hope Microsoft does some­thing about this. Or some­one designs a bet­ter pod­cast sync and library pro­gram. As all the pod­cast infor­ma­tion is actu­al­ly stored in the pod­cast file, you would think this was easy. Appar­ent­ly not.
