    I've knocked together a little MacRumors optimised site that parses the XML from the RSS feeds.

    Yes, I know you could just view the RSS page directly but you get the nice iPhone sliding interface and it's slightly friendlier than going through a 3rd party that stores your RSS feeds.

    Might try and get it listed on the Apple directory but get a feeling their not going to want to promote MacRumors.com

    Let me know what you think - isn't perfect but nicer than loading the full macrumors.com on the phone I think.

    nice effort, but...

    1. there is already a macrumors mobile site (mobile.macrumors.com), including forums, that works great on the iphone.
    2. macrumors is copyrighted/owned by arnold kim. did you get his permission to do this?

    Not cool dude. While I'm sure you intentions were good, traffic is what supports this site. Siphoning traffic to your feed will hurt MacRumors.

    Arn, sic Apple Legal on his ass. :D

    Huh? It sends traffic back to Mac Rumors. This is no different to an RSS reader for instance. If he was running ads against this then fair enough, but there are none.

    Yeah what every one else said. Mobile Macrumors works well on my iPhone...why another site to visit?

    I like his version of the mobile site.

    Instead of telling him that his site is worthless, maybe some of you should consider thanking him for taking the time to make a site that is more iphone app looking.

    Thank you.
