Consumer World and Mouse Print

The headline sounds like a superhero and the ever-loyal sidekick: Consumer World and Mouse Print.

That's not far wrong.

Consumer World is veteran consumer protection expert Edgar Dworsky's original site (no RSS field, but easy email newsletter subscription). Mouse Print is the Massachusetts-based writer's entertaining blog covering the tiny print on consumer packaging and advertising.

The blog has been having fun lately with package downsizing for food and beverage products. Here is the recent coverage for orange juice.

Hi Parke,

Mouse Print does indeed have an RSS feed.

It's located at:

http://feeds.feedburner.com/MousePrint

Regards,

Also, I'll let you in on a secret I only recently learned. Many sites with feeds, including Mouse Print, have a little orange RSS icon in the address bar, at least in Firefox. Click on the icon, and you're on your way to the feed.

It's the Consumer World site that uses an email subscription in place of RSS feed. The Mouse Print site is available as a traditional blog with RSS.
