Great mobile river of news – Topix.net

Steve Rubel over at Micro Persuasion finds some really cool stuff. This time, it’s another “river of news”-style site, Topix.net.

One cool feature – it autodetects when you go there with a mobile devices, and reformats the page appropriately. Looks perfect on my Windows Mobile phone.

You can also do specialized news queries, such as news in your area (topix.net/YOURZIPCODE).

To get the “mobile” formatted view in your desktop browser, just add ?lw=1 anywhere in the URL, like this.

Steve Rubel outlines the nitty gritty details on how to make a super-customized page on Topix. Which you can then enjoy in your desktop browser, or as a “river of news” on your mobile device.

Dave, you should definitely check this out.

EDIT: Have to play with this some more to see if it fits the true definition of a River of News – newest posts shown first.
