I have the sidebar currently working, but don't understand the actual purpose of it.

When you go to add things there are 4 things I see that are addable:

A clock - Obvious what this is

A search - searches the internet

RSS - I have no clue that this is

Thing of pictures - I have no clue what this is either

What all are you able to do using this Sidebar feature?

RSS is a format for syndicating news and the content of news-like sites, including major news sites like Wired, news-oriented community sites like Slashdot, and personal weblogs. But it's not just for news. Pretty much anything that can be broken down into discrete items can be syndicated via RSS: the "recent changes" page of a wiki, a changelog of CVS checkins, even the revision history of a book. Once information about each item is in RSS format, an RSS-aware program can check the feed for changes and react to the changes in an appropriate way.

I love the RSS feed on it and think it will be a great marketing tool for website owners. The only problem is I think there are only 4 slots. LOL
