Major Indian newspapers talks about RSS and how to use it for accessing the web

This major newspaper in India has an interesting article about how to access the web in a smarter way, what is RSS and how to use different news readers on your phone and on your PC.

As the World Wide Web evolves, its huge bank of information grows as well. That could potentially confound people, but thanks to technology developing further, the accessibility of content to us as readers or users is becoming more and more easier. Thanks to newer technologies like XML syndication and applications like RSS, ATOM amongst others we can get the information we seek, from the sites we want, at our convenience on our computers as well as our cellphones.

In other words, suppose you are a gizmo freak but you don’t really have time to browse ten different Internet sites a day, all you need to do is subscribe to the XML feeds which can be in the form of RSS or ATOM and have updated content delivered to your computer or cellphone without you having to visit any site. Saves precious time and is very convenient too.

RSS feeds on your cellphone
Your cell can be literally a bank of information on your chosen topic. High end phones like Sony Ericsson K790i, the Sony W Series and some Nokia models already have a built-in RSS reader which lets you decide the content fetch frequency besides other features. For those phones that do not have RSS capability, you could simply download small applications like Mobispine, DeliciousMona or News-lite and turn your tiny phone into an encyclopedia. Happy reading!

Anemonenallen on a Road Trip

Found this guy at our local lunch restaurant at Söder, in Stockholm. He asked to be taken to a new place so I left him at Viking Pizzeria in Karlskoga.

The teddy was from a kindergarten in Sweden. They track its way through Sweden by people sending updates about its whereabouts. Well, now it has been at Mobispine!

Happy new year all mobispiners

Sorry for the delayed greetings. We hope 2008 will be a fantastic year for all of us who care for Mobispine. Our mission is to continue work hard with the following tasks
  • Content - Present better and better content available to users worldwide. The goal is to always have local content available for people
  • Personalization - we try to implement intelligence in the system that can present interesting content to the users according to user profiles.
  • Performance - last month we have got lots of new users downloading the app and our systems have a hard time to keep up with the requirements.
We are aware of that the response times are kind of slow and that it takes a while when starting the mobispine app and we apologize for that. Lots of the techies work hard to make the situation better. Hopefully we will see some improvements within some days already.

If you have any feedback you'd like to tell us about just e-mail to us:

Take care!
the mobispine team
