I don't understand the whole RSS feed thing. I think it stands for "Really Simple Something", but it's computer stuff, so we all know that the really simple part of that is obviously a lie!
I read a number of different blogs each day. Often, I check in and the blogger has not yet posted that day, or skips many days between blogs. Not that it's a huge waste of time to do that, but it's like coming down the stairs on Christmas morning only to find that you are the only one up, and that there are no presents to open.
So, this Sharp Reader dealie is cool. And here's why. You "subscribe" to all the blogs you like to read. It regularly scans these blogs for changes and when there are changes, it sends you a pop up alert (if you are online) and changes the icon color on your toolbar from blue to yellow. Click the icon, and you are taken to the Sharp Reader page where it indicates in which blogs the activity has taken place. You can view the blog postings directly in Sharp Reader without having to make another trip to each blog site.
Way cool. The download and set up is a snap. Even I was able to do it without any help. Sharp Reader qualifies as a cool link.
