Topix aggregates local news on your handheld

1 Comment

Topix_netI used to use 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: 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.

It does provide a nice summary page, but unfortunately most of the site’s links are not mobile friendly so you can’t really read the full articles from the site.
