RSS tips #3: Mac options, and subcribing by email

I’ve had some feedback on our post about subscribing  to the blog in Outlook, which has led me to discover that Microsoft Office for Mac doesn’t currently offer RSS support – so the post isn’t much use to Mac users.

This is disappointing, and is compounded by Apple removing RSS support from Safari and Mail apps in the latest version of OSX. A good solution is subscribing using a web-based, cross-platform service such as Google Reader, which I’ll look at in an upcoming post.

I’ve also added the option to subscribe by email. This uses Google’s Feedburner service, which will send you a daily digest of new posts. You’ll see the link in the new Subscribe widget on the right of the page.
