Also if you have not tried ePaper from The Times Of India then you should try it. Its free and USR is http://epaperdaily.timesofindia.com

These are the Web Service, XML and RSS days. RSS means 'Really Simple Syndication' and it provides a convenient way to syndicate information from various websites and other sources.


Most of the web sites are now providing RSS feeds that you can subscribe and read through a RSS reader. If you are using a RSS reader then you don't need to visit every website to see the updates on the website that matches your area of interest. RSS reader will keep checking all the web site you subscribed and display alerts whenever new information to read is available.


There are many RSS reader available for free and I have used few of them like SharpReader, FeedReader, AmphetaDesk, RSS Bandit etc.


I like RSSBandit (www.rssbandit.org) most as compare to the other available RSS reader because of the following reason:


Its free, it’s very simple to use,

It provide facility to manage RSS feeds in various folders,

It gives a consolidated view of the various RRS feeds inside a folder,

It opens the full story window in a new tab in the RRS reader so you don't fee you are lost just change the tab and you are back to RSS reader.

And it is extensible, you can download various plug-in for it or even you can develop your own plug-in.

The list of nice features is long but I mentioned the feature that I use in my day to day life.


You can also create your own news reader like RSSBandit with the help of this article in the MSDN Library. http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dnexxml/html/x...


Following are the RSS feed that I have subscribed and writing for your reference as an staring point. RSS Bandit also provide export/import feature and you can import the feeds that I have subscribed by importing http://www.geocities.com/vinnisharma/Example_MyRSSFeedSubs.zip file.

Saving money is good and proper investment of the saved money is an art by which you can make your saved money to grow itself for you.


There are many ways to save and invest money. Like investing in National Saving Bonds, PF/PPF, 401 plans, Mutual Funds, LIC, Retirement Schemes, Properties (home, shop and pots), Stocks etc. National Saving bonds considered as safest investment while stocks are considered as most risky investment. Based on the risk involved you will get return. Stocks can gives you maximum return then any other investment but at the same time you can loss your saved money. You should invest in multiple things and there should a proper balance between them. Percentage of amount you put in multiple investment depends on your risk caring capacity.


Again the portion of the money you plan to invest in the stocks should be further divided into three categories. Long term, medium term and short term. You hold good fundamental stocks for long time regardless of their price movements, medium term stock are those that you plan to hold 0.5-1.5 year and you need to watch the price, news and market conditions for buy and sell decisions, short term stocks that you buy for immediate return based on some recommendation or news and you plan to hold these stocks for 1-6 months.
