Integration between Palm and Bloglines


Over at Lifehack.Community, Klaas Naaijkens has introduced a good steps on setting up offline reading of feeds in bloglines to Palm! He introduced a application which is pretty useful, called Sunrise, which can convert websites and RSS and Atom feeds for offline reading on your handheld, then you can view it with a ebook viewer in Palm called Plucker (or Vade Mecum in PocketPC):

Finally organized with bloglines and my palm. In my quest to minimise my distractions when I am doing a task, I went from endless surfing, to preloaded tabs in firefox, to bloglines, and now to offline reading of bloglines on my palm. Even in bloglines I was distracted by all the information on my screen, especially if I have to click through the RSS feed to read articles on some site. But now I have found some peace.

But now three times a day, I open sunrise, update the bloglines link, sync to my palm, close my pc and read. Takes me about a third of the time I needed before, without blocking my creativity and learning as I can open a memo in my palm with one click. Now I use my browser only for tasks which I clearly define beforehand, and I can still use bloglines as before, just that those articles that have been transfered to my palm have been marked as read…

Klaas also wrote a script to run through bloglines pages without clicking the links which should be pretty useful. Thanks Klaas!
