Hello,<br> I read macminute's news every day. Lately, I've been using NetNewWire to get rss feed and it works perfectly fine. However, I'd like to make one suggestion : Could it be possible to have either half of the news or maybe even the whole news in the RSSfeed? <br>See, right now, there is only like one sentence and sometimes it's not enough to know if you want to go check the news or not. <br>I understand that some people prefer this because it's lighter and everything, but if it's the case, maybe we could have a light and an heavy RSS feed from macminute? When looking at the preview of Safari2 (tiger), you can see that there is a way to reduce the amount of data coming from the feed, however, you can't increase it (it's the "feeder", in this case macminute, who chooses how long his feed is).<br>Does that make sense to you guys?<br><br>Thanks in advance,<br> -nokoston<br><br>
This has been brought up many times in the past. Basically, if our RSS feed includes our entire news stories, then there is no reason to come to the MacMinute website. And then our banner ads (which keep MacMinute going) won't ever get seen by readers. Without advertising dollars, there won't be a MacMinute, much less a summary MacMinute RSS feed.<br>
i agree, RSS should be a lure to the site. however Larry, how about payed RSS subscriptions with full news? you may get a couple of dozen subscribers.<br><br>by the way, i'm sure you know about it, but it only occured to me now, that you can have google alert you, if it finds a new site with set keywords. that's pretty useful for macminute!<br><br>
