    Is there a way to autoblog/autopost RSS feeds for a particular topic? So if I grab an rss from site http://www.blah*com and they post 10 times a day on all kinds of cell phone topics, how could I set the autoblog up so that it only reposts stuff from blah*com related to iphones or crackberries?

    I had never heard of "yahoo pipes" before. I was very tentative when I went out to search on it, because I thought there was a 50/50 chance you were playing a trick on me and I'd end up on some porno page lol. Just the name of it is pretty funny if you have a dirty mind. Any way, I'm reading up on it now...http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/

    There is a video series here on BHW about Dapper and Yahoo Pipes It's good stuff. Trouble is I can't remember under what title it was published. I used it for selective 'movie trailer videos' on apple.com. The RSS works well with most readers but NOT ALL! If I find the info I'll post it here.
