Im creating a weather lamp, where the arduino takes data from the RSS feed, which would then change the light to represent the weather. After this I look to use a touch sensor to activate sound, where it would tell the user what the weather is going to be like, sunny rainy etc.

So what I want to know is;
Do I need an ethernet cable to be able to get the RSS data?
and will I be able to trigger sound with a touch sensor?

Many thanks

You need Ethernet, WiFi, or a program running on a PC with Internet access to pass the data through the USB cable to the Arduino.

Yes.  You can use a touch sensor to do anything you like.

You can implement a touch sensor with two data pins and a resistor. See: http://www.arduino.cc/playground/Main/CapSense

For sound output you would probably want some specialized hardware such as the Wave Shield (http://www.adafruit.com/products/94) or MP3 Trigger (http://www.sparkfun.com/products/11029).
