    Let's see if we can get more subscribers to our front-page news RSS feed. It's a shame for a site this big to only have 582 feed subscribers (at the time of writing this). So, let's see if you, the members, can get it up past 1,000!

    You can automatically add the feed to most readers by clicking here and selecting the correct option, but if you need to add it manually to your reader, our feed URL is:
    Code:
    http://feeds.feedburner.com/ipodtouchfans/news

    i would love to see more updates on the news page to really turn it into a usefull newspage.
    for me now it still lacks the "news" factor

    we've been improving the frequency of news postings. if we know that there are a lot of readers, we'll have a bigger incentive to update it more often though

    Got iGoogle?

    Go to this page in iGoogle and add the feed to your own page!

    Touchfans admins add this image to your site to make it easier for us igoogle users!

    WHY???????????? Why would anyone need an RSS feed for a newspage that updates once a day or less???? That's why there are only about 500 subscribers.
