I've wanted a dedicated device for note taking, browsing the… Continue

Real Simple Syndication (RSS) is a great way to stay up to date on your items of interest without visiting page after page every day.

On a Mac, it is very easy to subscribe to an RSS feed. Here is a great video from Apple explaining how to use… Continue
