My Yahoo RSS as feed reader for WAP phones?

posted: Jan 26, 2004 4:41:27 PM

Jeremy Zawodny recently announced that My Yahoo! RSS Beta Launched, and I got all excited thinking I could get RSS feeds on my WAP phone via My Yahoo! Well, not yet: My Yahoo RSS doesn't seem to be accessible through the My Yahoo! WAP site, but that would be great if it were, right?

Good post from Mikel Maron with his thoughts on My Yahoo RSS Headlines Beta (via Marc Canter). It is great to catch up with Mikel via his blog.

Turns out that Mikel has recently created My Yahoo to RSS, which takes one's My Yahoo! page and turns it into RSS.

My Yahoo to RSS uses code described in Mikel's paper, Screen Scraping with Finite State Machines [pdf], which coincidentally looks relevant to what I was talking about in my previous post.
