RSS - New Use - 1

In my last post I had mentioned one of the new uses of RSS, well as I comment, I had stuart(anonymous) tell me about another, this functionality i find pretty good, particularly to go deal hunting.

Basically the site lets you register and select your preferred vendors, and then forward keeps you updated(via RSS at your aggregator) about stuff/deals etc available on those sites,

For More Details

Its functionality though simple can be can generate significant marketing for the vendors, this is in simple terms selective push based communication (who said that was simple....).

Let me try it out ....will keep u updated,

Also I have two questions -
1. How do these guys get the information from the various vendors ? - technology Q
2. What is their revenue model, or how do they plan to monetise this? - business Q
