Useful RSS mashup tools (especially for converting your blog posts into a PDF)

Want to tweak your RSS feeds a little? Then try out xFruits, an RSS mashup tool that can create PDF files from your feeds, or combine a number of feeds into one.

If you are thinking of including your blog posts from this semester in your physical communication portfolio (yes seniors, those portfolios will be due soon!), you can also use this tool to create a decent-looking PDF version of your blog and then print out the PDF.

It looks like xFruits might be a little easier to use than Yahoo pipes, another tool that allows you to aggregate, manipulate, and mashup content from around the web.

FilteredRSS.com is a unique filtering tool for RSS feeds. Instead of using keywords, FilteredRSS.com actually utilizes Bayesian analysis to identify what items in your feed you may like. It works much like a good email spam filter: you teach the filter by identifying feed items you like and do not like. The more you train the filter the better it will understand your preferences.

I encourage you to give it a try at: http://www.filteredrss.com
