Noob. Can someone please tell me what RSS reader is/does specifically and how to get one? From what Ive gathered by reading tons of posts, its a live news feed yes? Do I have to download a widget to have this? Do I have to have a special home page program or DXtop? If you have a RSS (which ive only seen in thread where people post pics of their screens) is it something that shows up constantly on your page like the clock or home page icons but updates like a ticker?
Rss feeds are basically blog posts etc that your rss reader will fetch automatically, so in a sense they are like live news feeds, depending upon which feed you subscribe to. Google reader is an rss reader. You can try it out by opening your google account on your computer and go to more > Reader. There are probably some default feeds in there already, as well as instructions on how to add more. Try adding the androidcentral.com forum feed for a start. Once you set it up you'll be able to read the feeds from your phone, computer, whatever.
