-I was interested in finding a way to get Thunderbird's calendar/contact databases into Windows-based iPods. I have researched and come up with a good process to quickly do this. Below I outline separately the steps taken to import ''calander'' events and ''address book contact'' entries into your iPod. +=== Level 3 heading ===

 +|RSS
 +|-
 +|Many web sites generate a continuous stream of new articles. For example, Yahoo News.
 +|-
 +|While you can always visit Yahoo News to see the latest articles, it's sometimes more convenient to have new stories sent to you automatically. Traditionally this has been done via email.
 +|-
 +|'''RSS is a new way to automatically get just the latest info you care about''', whether its new headlines from Yahoo's Business section, or the latest entries from your favorite blogs.
 +|- style="font-size: large; color=red;"
 +|What does RSS stand for?
 +|-
 +|RSS originally stood for Rich Site Summary. But it makes a bit more sense if you think of it as Really Simple Syndication, a way for web sites to syndicate content.
 +|}
-:2. Select ALL events in the filter window and highlight all events:+{| class="submenu" style="width:300px;"
 +|- style="text-align:center; font-size: xx-large; color=red;"
 +|Some '''search engines''' are getting in on the RSS act too.
 +|-
 +|Traditionally search engines listed results right in your browser in direct response to you initiating a search. More recently they've begun allowing you to '''store a search''' forever and have it repeatedly initiated, say once an hour, and the '''latest results sent to you''', automatically via email.
 +|-
 +|Now, with RSS, they can continually write results to your very own RSS stream so you get near instant notification of the latest web pages, news headlines, or blogs about any topic you care to pick.
 +|-
 +|Bookmark several of these search result feeds and you've got your very own custom digital newspaper!
