What is RSS?
RSS is an acronym for Really Simple Syndication. It's a computer protocol for distributing news headlines and articles on the Web. This is a method by which web content can be distributed automatically to subscribers each time they are refreshed. This allows users to subscribe to content and then view it on an RSS reader, which aggregates the latest feeds in a single application without revisiting each individual website. Odiogo takes an existing textual RSS feed and creates a new one, identical to the original one, enriched with an audio file for each piece of content. RSS feeds can be viewed and listened to with RSS readers such as FeedDemon, or FeedReader or through personalized Homepage/RSS reader services such as My Yahoo!, Netvibes or Pageflakes. With an MP3 player or an iPod one would use podcast management tools such as Apple's iTunes or iPodder.
