Newsfeeds going dead!
Why is it that newsfeeds seem to be dying? About 2 months ago, the Yahoo! News feed, which was very active, went nearly dead. After trying a few, I ended up with USA Today, which at least had a decent amount of new entries every day. Now, that has gone totally dead.
Most of the other news feeds are from sources I don't trust, not US oriented, or generally require a subscription to read beyond the headline. If this keeps up, I may have to start using the Comcast home page! (barf)
I can add that the USA Today app just started working. Again, this is something listed in your standard News apps available.
I have no idea what the RSS feed is. This is one of your own apps. In fact, it's listed in your 'Essential Apps' section (near bottom-right as "Yahoo! News".)
