4. The Internet and Other Networks > 39. Read News and Blogs on the BlackBerry

Read News and Blogs on the BlackBerry

RSS and Atom feeds offer a smaller version of a web site, but some or all of the same content. By using an aggregator, you can cluster all sorts of related sites together and read news and other data from a variety of sources large and small.

There are a variety of ways to get your RSS feeds onto your BlackBerry, but my favorite is to use Bloglines (http://www.bloglines.com/).

Bloglines is a web-based RSS reader, which sounds kind of goofy in a way because you’re trying to leave the web browser behind when you’re scouring over your feeds. Fact is, Bloglines is quite brilliant due to one critical reason: it keeps track of what you’re reading no matter where you’re logged in from. When you log in via your desktop PC, your PowerBook, a computer at a friend’s, a public terminal, or your BlackBerry, you’ll never see the same article twice if you use Bloglines (unless you mark it “Keep New”). Using Bloglines will cut down dramatically on the flood of things you are confronted with at any given time, and certainly helps make your RSS feeds more useful on the go.
