What is a lens hood and Lens Adapter Ring is?

I just bought a Sony Cyber-shot 9.1 megapixel Digital Camera comes with a hood and lens adapter ring is supposed to hook onto the lens. What is the purpose of these?

hood is to minimize glare ambient light from what I understand … lens adapter ring? maybe to hold extra lenses … I have a Canon Powershot S3 IS, and has the ring thing too. I understand that to connect zoom lenses to give extra special, special features, etc would have to check the manufacturer's website to see about the lenses that work for it though. check out sonystyle.com and look at its camera section. Additional lenses may be specific to that camera, unless you can take Minolta A mount as the Sony Alpha series of Digital Slr cameras. in any case, consult the website of sony: D
