MacRumors' Page 2 and MacPolls.com now sport their own RSS Feeds, allowing users of RSS Readers, such as SlashDock and NetNewsWire to follow updates to these sites.

Page 2 compiles Rumors and News of lesser interest or reliability. Recent articles include PowerBook Plans, iMac Updates in September, and the possibility of a Bluetooth mouse this Friday. The RSS feed can be found here:

Meanwhile, MacPolls.com offers daily polls on mac related topics.

Very Cool

This is great, arn. I'm glad to see MacRumors making good use of RSS.

This might not be possible, but another cool thing would be the ability to subscribe to specific threads via RSS, as an alternative to email notification.

I hadn't ever heard of RSS or SlashDock or anything of this until this thread. Now I don't even have to open a browser to check out MacRumors and Slashdot. Like I didn't spend too much time here already.:D

Yea NetNewsWire is fine and dandy, but you can't load RSS feeds onto your iPod.

Ah ha! Pod2Go can do this! Go check it out it's free and there's tons of sweet stuff besides RSS feeds (includes over 300 hand-picked feeds).

(yea self advertising but I'm allowed to!)

RSS feed behind the times.

Any particular reason why the RSS feed is way behind the front page?

Currently the RSS feed is on, "Apple Targeting PC File Traders with New Internet Ads" while the front page is on "Virginia Tech Supercomputer Ranks #4". That puts the RSS feed 2 stories behind the front page.

Minor glitch. Should be working now.
