RSS Filter With Keyword Exclusion Function

rss filter

FilterMyRSS is another website I run. This website is an RSS Filter utility to help people manage the amount of information flowing through their reader. Today I’ve added a new feature: exclusion via keyword. This new feature allows you to filter out articles based off keywords. A simple example would be filtering out content with profanity. The RSS exclusion function is very easy to use. Simply place a negative sign in front of the keyword for exclusion. Example: Lets say you are sick-and-tired of hearing about the iPhone. You could filter out articles based on that keyword by typing “-iphone” into the filter field. Check it out: www.filtermyrss.com So who cares about RSS filters anyway? Well, just about anyone who reads their information via a RSS feed reader. Lets say you are Paul from Technabob who wants to only post articles about “gadgets” Using FilterMyRSS he can subscribe to 100s of RSS feeds, from a variety of genres, and only read information related to “gadgets.” Or maybe Max from SiteHoppin loves to read up on blogging and social networking, but can’t stand to hear another word about “Stumbleupon.” Using FilterMyRSS, Max can subscribe to any feed he wants and filter OUT anything related to “Stumbleupon.” If you haven’t started using RSS readers to get your daily dose of information, you should start. It’s a lot easier than visiting dozens of sites each day. It’s a lot easier than managing your email inbox too. Spice things up with a RSS filter and get EXACTLY what you want. Don’t know how to get a RSS link? It’s easy, look on any homepage for the RSS logo (or text) and click the link. When the new webpage is displayed copy the link and paste into FilterMyRSS, enter some keywords and begin getting your filtered RSS feed. It’s quick. It’s easy. It’s fun…and best of all, it’s free! Still confused – check out my explanation of RSS feeds and how you can use them. Continue Reading

Get It In Espanol – USB Powered Gadgets In Espanol

spanish getusb.infoGetUSB.info has been translating our posts into Spanish for quite some time now.  Our Spanish site isn’t an automated translation engine either – it’s the real deal.  Carlos is my Editor in Chief for GetUSB.info Espanol and is relentless in his punctual translations.  Located in Panama, Carlos not only does the edits for spanish.getusb.info but also runs Panama Live, an online travel and tourism magazine for Panama, and Adarte Studio, an online community for designers, webmasters and SEO professionals. Carlos just reported some interesting statistics about his visitor base and I wanted to take some time to A) say “thanks” to Carlos for being a great editor and B) share the visitor statistics.  So here we are:

Cell Phone Signal Booster – Extender

Having poor cell phone reception is a frustrating thing and it seems there’s always a zone you can’t get a call, regardless of courier. I’m lucky enough to get 4 bars of reception at my location, but my neighbor who works less than 1 mile away, gets only one lousy bar. Southern California has rolling hills which plays havoc for cell phone providers. Until now that is. If your home or office is in a dead zone, or an area with low quality reception consider this cell phone signal booster, or signal extender.

cell phone extender, booster

This bad boy will boost your weak signal into full bar reception. All you need is at least one bar to let the cell phone extender do it’s boosting. The mobile phone signal booster will add 2,500 square feet of pristine clear reception to where ever the installation is…that’s about 3 additional rooms or offices. So what does something like this cost you? Just slightly more than cancelling your cell phone contract, about $250 bucks. Jump over to ThinkGeek to get the details and different models available. You need to select the correct model for your courier service. It’s one of ThinkGeek’s hottest sellers, so it’s obviously worth the investment. Continue Reading

GetUSB Is Naked – CSS Naked Day

css iconToday, April 9th 2008 is the official CSS Naked Day.  This is why GetUSB looks simple and plain. On April 9th, 2008, hundreds, possibly thousands, of blogs and websites will go naked in honor of CSS Naked Day. This is the third year of the annual CSS Naked Day which honors web design and designers around the world who help make our websites and blogs look “pretty” to the eye while still being totally functional under the hood. Dustin Diaz wanted to give the web world an opportunity to remind everyone of the benefits of CSS web page design. By removing the stylesheet for the day, the world would see naked web pages, giving a little more appreciation for the skills of web page designers. I think you’ll agree – CSS is an invaluable toolGetUSB looks so much better in my slick, customized CSS style sheet. Today is also an opportunity to showcase how usable and accessible my web page structure is even without the pretty, reminding the world that it is the law that your website must accessible by everyone using any method to access your blog.
