It should already work with wap, but not sure to what extent. To be quite honest, there is far too much data on here to work successfully.

Just got the Live Bookmarks working for Firefox. Anyone using the firefox browser should now see an orange icon in the bottom right hand corner of the browser screen. Clicking this icon will add a live bookmark for this site, Your bookmarks will then keep updating with the latest post's.

Its cool give it a try :D

If you use a Mac and run OS X 10.4 you can set the RSS feeds from this site as your screen saver.

Systems Preferences > Desktop & Screen Saver > RSS Visualizer > Options > Select Satellites TV

You can set a mouse position to activate it.

It is amazing each story will appear in 3D with the option to press a number key to open the web page.

Wish I could capture it and post it....

Here you go
