What is RSS?
RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is a format for distributing news and other information
on the Internet. The advantage of RSS is that a small 'news reader' program can sit on your
desktop and grab the headlines for you automatically every few hours or minutes. Several good
news readers are available for free, and we've provided links to them below.
The RSS news feeds are provided free of charge for use by individuals and non-profit
organizations for personal, non-commercial uses. We ask that you provide attribution to
ThomasNet News® in connection with your use of the feeds.
If you provide this attribution in text, please use: ThomasNet News®
If you provide this attribution with a graphic, please use the Powered By TIN logo that we
have included in the feed itself.
We reserve all rights in and to the TIN logo, and your right to use the TIN logo is
limited to providing attribution in connection with these RSS feeds.
TIN also reserves the right to require you to cease distributing these feeds at any
time for any reason.
If you need a news reader program we suggest one one of the following:
- FeedDemon This is a great standalone program for Windows systems.
It's fast and easy to use, but has lots of powerful features. Download a free trial.
- FeedReader A freeware Windows application that reads and displays
RSS newsfeeds. Seems to work well on any recent version of Windows.
- NewsGator This one integrates with Microsoft Outlook so the news is
displayed in a familiar format just like your e-mail.
