I used to use Topix.net for topical story aggregation but RSS steered me away from it at some point previously. It’s a great service, but I really haven’t looked at it in some time. Just last week, Topix gave me a new reason to review their service again: localized news for the small-screen mobile handhelds. If you have a BlackBerry, Palm Treo, PalmOS phones, Windows CE/Pocket PC/Windows Mobile, SonyEricsson, Symbian, or Nokia device you can use this link on your mobile browser: http://www.topix.net/ZIP. Just be sure to replace the word ZIP with your zip code; there’s apparently zippo happening in the town of ZIP at the moment! This will also work on standard browsers for those that haven’t made the mobile leap as of yet.
