Chapter 11. Feeding on Blogs, Podcasts, and News with Outlook RSS

In This Chapter

  • Explaining blogs

  • Understanding podcasts

  • Getting an RSS feed

You can manage your whole life with Outlook. What could be more important than that? Blogs and podcasts, that's what! Now Outlook can help you explore the most exciting region of cyberspace: the world of blogs, podcasts, and other syndicated online media.

A system called RSS most often delivers blogs, podcasts, and newsfeeds to the people who subscribe to them. Lucky for us, you needn't know anything about RSS to enjoy its benefits — but it can't hurt!
