msdn: “The RSS Feed Synchronization Engine downloads feeds and merges the new items with the existing data in the feed store. Using the Feeds API, applications can then expose the feed data to the user.” This is momentous: Microsoft is baking RSS support into Windows. Not merely adding aggregation to a bundled app, but shipping APIs so that others can build RSS apps. This would seem to be analagous to the embeddable web browser control that made it trivial to HTML-enable an app. As such, we should expect to see a number of new syndication-powered apps coming online. Very exciting!
