Thumbs up Aggregating your various feeds into Nokia's web browser

Everyone uses RSS nowadays, right? RIGHT? haha...
Well as we know Nokia's web browser allows for RSS feeds, albeit slightly crippled..what if i want to have feeds for the 5 blogs, 3 tech sites, 2 car sites, etc showing on the homescreen?

So i've been looking around, and discovered a site that explained on Yahoo! Pipes. As the web browser only allows you for one feed slot as a widget, this basically allows you to gather a collection of rss feeds and combine them into one single feed.

1. Add your various feeds
2. filter them (choose 5 newest only, etc)
3. combine them

all you need to do after that is to just choose RSS View and copy the shortcut into your Web RSS. Add that as a widget and you're good to go!

interestingly the rss widget, and opening the browser to read the rss feeds takes up very little RAM. impressive!

For a more detailed howto, you can visit the site here.

cheers!
