RSS stands for really simple syndication, it is a family of web feed formats used to publish frequently updated works such as blogs.
RSS is available in most of the cell phones in market today. They provide an easy way to stay connected or updated with information from the site also.
RSS provides the option as to how much time it should wait before refreshing the feeds. This greatly enhances the battery life of the mobile phones. If instead of RSS, one is staying connected via WAP or GPRS connection, it takes a heavy toll on the life of the battery.
That is the reason why most of the recent releases of cell phones don't have lasting battery.

RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication.
Need for RSS
Some websites are updated frequently. So to send the updated content (e.g. news etc.) To a large number of readers website use RSS which automatically sends the updates to the desired receivers.
How to use RSS
RSS is implemented by using XML(used to transmit and store data efficiently). To know the syntax and implement it in your blog you can use the w3schools tutorial(I have read it and its written in a lucid manner). The URL is given as reference URL.
Benefit of RSS
Some sites are updated too frequently. So users have to visit the site to check for updated content. Since this is too time consuming, webmasters often make the use of RSS. Since RSS is written in XML its light and compact. Another advantage is that users will be able to view the updated content easily on PDAs.

RSS, formally known as Resource Description Framework (RDF site summary) called as Really Simple Syndication, using the format of XML (eXtensible Markup Language), belongs to a family of web feed formats that contains the data and information about the latest publish articles/posts on any blog/site/New headlines.
The idea behind creating Really Simple Syndication is to let search engines know the about the latest information published on a site or blog easily. Even Google news uses RSS feed to pull latest news content from news website
Benefits of RSS feed: Lets suppose you have lots of websites (say 100) in your browser's bookmark and you want to know the latest content published on all these sites, it would be very difficult for you to visit each site manually and search for fresh content. Here comes the RSS feed into picture, now a days every site has enabled RSS feed, you just have to subscribed to RSS feed of every site through any RSS reader (few well known RSS reader are Google reader, feedly). Now all fresh content produced on these sites is aggregated at one place by rss reader and you can easily search the fresh content of your interest.
If you are using blogspot blog rss feed is enabled by default. You can change rss feed setting by visiting your blog dashboard, click setting tab appearing on left side of window, then other option, here you can configure rss feed setting as per your requirements.
