Have you checked out Alltop.com on your mobile device?

I wanted to let you know about a cool site that was launched by the famous Matt Kawasaki a while ago that I think you might find quite useful when trying to find the latest news and posts in areas you are personally interested in. The Alltop.com site is a collection of RSS feeds in 10 major categories, with a large collection of minor categories, that help you to quickly see what the latest postings are on your favorite sites. Alltop.com attempt to serve as an aggregator for "all the top" sites on the web. This ZDNet blog was recently placed into the Gadgets and Mobile categories.

I wanted to let you know about a cool site that was launched by the famous Guy Kawasaki a while ago that I think you might find quite useful when trying to find the latest news and posts in areas you are personally interested in. The Alltop.com site is a collection of RSS feeds in 10 major categories, with a large collection of minor categories, that help you to quickly see what the latest postings are on your favorite sites. Alltop.com attempt to serve as an aggregator for "all the top" sites on the web. This ZDNet blog was recently placed into the Gadgets and Mobile categories.

You will find the 5 latest headlines appear for each site highlighted on Alltop.com. If you are on a PC or Mac then you will see part of the story displayed when you place your cursor over a headline. Clicking the headline then takes you to the site and the full story. You can also go to the home page of the site by clicking on the site's name above the feeds. Alltop.com reminds me of Google with its simple, yet effective layout and I think that is its current strength.

However, it does not appear to be a true RSS aggregator like Bloglines or Google Reader that keeps track of what feeds you already read. Since I spend most of my time surfing from mobile devices I was happy to see you can view a mobile version by simply adding a /m at the end of the URL you wish to visit. I actually would have preferred to have seen m. at the beginning of the URL since that is a more standard approach and it too me a bit of searching to figure out how to get to the mobile version of the site with the /m designation.
