Should MacRumors Update their RSS Feed with Graphics

  1. Absolutely! It makes sense, if an article is a product review- you want to see the product!

  2. Sure, Why Not

  3. No, the concept of RSS feeds it to avoid graphics. Keep it the same.

    I would like to petition MacRumors to add one photograph/graphic to each RSS Headline that requires it.

    For Example: if the RSS headline reads "Griffin Technology Updates Elan case for iPhone 3G" then when you select the RSS article, from your RSS reader, it should show a pic of the case in addition to the text.

    Another Example: if the RSS headline reads "AT&T cuts 3 Jobs" then an article like that would not require a photograph, but possibly an AT&T logo graphic. But this is pretty much an example of an article that doesn't really require a graphic.

    I understand the concept of RSS is to typically avoid graphics. But times have changed, and RSS Feeds are still very efficient with graphics.
    In a nutshell, I like Engadget's RSS Feed, because they have graphics within their RSS. And I think MacRumors would greatly benefit from that update as well. I know I would joy some of these article more. As geeky as this sounds, it makes more pleasurable to view RSS Feeds with graphics on an iPhone, especially.

    Appleinsider puts ads in their RSS feed and I do not want that but images and more text would be useful so I would not have to go to the page to read the whole article.

    Would also like access to the FULL Article not just one sentence. Now that would be Great seeing as Macrumors is pusing MacHeist Bundle which I contributed to from this site and Times is a Great program BUT Macrumors does not give the full article feeds! I'd like to see all my news with just Times. It's a great program but incomplete RSS feeds takes a lot away from that. Please consider Full Article RSS Feeds even if you don't include the graphics from the articles. Thanks!;)

    I unsubscribed to MR RSS today. Seems I can get better fuller articles elsewhere these days.
