Ok, now this is really cool. You can now get notices of new articles which show up at your favorite websites sent to your cell phone via SMS text message, as part of Yahoo’s free “RSS by SMS” alert service.
Not sure yet what RSS is? RSS stands for “Really Simple Syndication”. Here’s how it works, using the Internet Patrol as an example:
The Internet Patrol publishes lots of articles every day of the week, and at all hours (it’s true, I never sleep!) Wouldn’t it be great if instead of having to visit the Internet Patrol website every hour or at least every day to learn what new and great information we’ve put up for you to read, you could just look at something which would give you a list of new articles, updated as they are published?
|Get notified of new Internet Patrol articles for free!
|Or Read Internet Patrol Articles Right in Your Inbox!
as Soon as They are Published! Only $1 a Month!
Imagine being able to read full articles right in your email, or on your phone, without ever having to click through to the website unless you want to! Just $1 a month and you can cancel at any time!
That’s what RSS is. Every time the Internet Patrol publishes a new article, the RSS list of articles is updated.
Usually to see this RSS list, you would use software called an “RSS feed reader.”
But now, thanks to the magic of Yahoo’s new RSS by SMS service, you can get notices of new articles published to the Internet Patrol (or anywhere else with an RSS feed) sent directly to your cell phone!

No Paywall Here!
The Internet Patrol is and always has been free. We don't hide our articles behind a paywall, or restrict the number of articles you can read in a month if you don't give us money. That said, it does cost us money to run the site, so if something you read here was helpful or useful, won't you consider donating something to help keep the Internet Patrol free? Thank you!
