>SlicedBread = Your Favorite TechNet Search as RSS Feed

Rejoice that the boffins at TechNet have released a new scoped TechNet search, that includes an RSS feed of your favorite search. How great is that?

You scope your search to the products and technologies that are relevant to you, then save your search query as an RSS feed, so that future search results matching your query will automatically show up in the feed. TechNet calls this "Enhanced Search" and all I can say is "yipee, where have you been all my life?" 

Not to mention that you can now do Robert Scoble-esque saved searches (as RSS feed) of phrases that may be important to you, like "Carmine sucks" or things of that sort.

Did I mention that there's also a search blog, where you can directly express your glee, or point out gaffs?

This is what I call salty goodness. Why? You are an IT Pro - studies say you are risk averse, or you work for a risk averse IT shop. New tech is alluring, but risky. Wouldn't it reduce risk for you to know that you can go ahead and download the new tasty bits, try them out, and in the background your saved search on "tasty bits" is diligently collecting up all the new TechNet, KB and TechNet blog instances of "tasty bits"?

    This reminds me of Feedster and I like it, when I plug in SMS 2003 here is what I get.

    Rejoice that…
