The difference is how the message is read. An RSS feed has to link to a web site while a newsreader is reading individual messages, unfortunately, at this time, there is no way to incorporate the two.

News is only one form of content that can be distributed with an RSS feed. Other possibilities include discussion forum excerpts, software announcements, and any form of content retrievable with a URL.
