When people hear that my wife and I don't have television, one of the first questions they ask is, "How do you get the news?" The answer is RSS. Most every website has an RSS feed, which is a list of all recent headlines. It's the best way to keep up to date with news and hobbies you enjoy. The Mac has programs which can aggregate your RSS feeds into one location, making it simple to see everything in one place. Think of it as building your own newspaper. Apple's Mail program will act as an RSS reader, and if you get really into this, you can check out my favorite from the Mac App Store called Reeder. Scott Wilson, who works for the Birmingham News, has put together a list of RSS feeds from folks in the area. I invite you to go check it out. You might even find yours truly listed, too. Thanks Scott!
