Simple Life = iTalk Whoa!

Let’s back trace our lives few years ago… heck make it 10 years ago! It wasn’t this busy although we are already surfing the net, chatting on chatrooms – forums… and meeting up with them in IRL – In Real Life.

Now, with social media such as Facebook, Friendster, Twitter, MSN and NEWS that comes in constantly no matter what time it is… day or night! We can consider ourselves lucky now coz back then NEWS take yonks to go through one to another…

Remember the NEWS on Fuel hike many many years ago! That you found out via Newspaper / Radio and later on via news sites (or perhaps even blogs). But this medium takes time to get to you… and by the time you realize it, fuel prices has already gone up. Now with the different types of social media… (i.e.: Twitter, Facebook) you get all these updates almost instantaneously!

Now, there’s almost everything that can make your life simpler… and one of it is RSS feeds! What are RSS feeds you might ask! Well RSS stands for “REALLY SIMPLE SYNDICATION”. Hence the shortform R-S-S.


The beauty of RSS Feeds:
