RSS feed from AO. Nice! - INFO

Me new phone (SE K800i ) has
RSS feeds.

So when you bring up alfaowner.com in
the browser it gives you the option of
setting up an RSS feed for the site.

So you can browse the lastest posts without
fully logging on via the web. If you want to
read a full post you just select it and it logs
on and brings it up.

Well cool feature. (Both site and phone!)

Thanks for mentioning... Our new classifieds section will also have an rss feed so you can track your ads without even visiting

Re: RSS feed from AO. Nice!

Is AO's website for mobiles the same as when using a desktop browser? Just asking as some websites have slimmed down versions without the graphics.

Just go to www.opera.com and
it should recognize your phone and
offer you a download.

Thanks again Nev! Unfortunately it doesn't work my dodgy Japanese phone (though being a Vodafone) doesn't even let me install Opera Mini low memory version.

Oh well, I'll just need to carry my laptop everywhere

You can also use the google reader on your
personalised Google homepage to read the
feeds "on the sly" at work.
