Adobe myFeedz - an RSS Aggregator That Learns from You

Adobe has officially stepped into the RSS news aggregator business with the launch of myFeedz on Adobe Labs.

Unlike other web based RSS readers like Google Reader or Bloglines, myFeeds tries to learn from what you read regularly and accordingly displays news items / blog posts that might be of interest to you.

myFeedz can read a list of your favorite feeds (via OPML files) and give you a personalized river of news view. Another useful feature is that you can sort articles by date or by popularity. Your reading history is also taken into account while calculating what stories are more relevant for you.

myFeedz was initially a product of InterAKT who made some of the most popular extensions for Macromedia Dreamweaver. Adobe recently acquired InterAKT and released myFeedz on Adobe Labs.

It is not immediately known how Adobe plans to monetize myFeedz in future. The site is currently free of advertisements but they might use the same contextual ad inventory planned for Adobe Digital Editions.

How to Download Contacts from Facebook To Outlook Address Book

Facebook users are not too pleased with the "walled garden" approach of Facebook. The reason is simple - while you can easily import your Outlook address book and GMail contacts into Facebook, the reverse path is closed. There's no "official" way to export your Facebook friends email addresses or contact phone numbers out as a CSV file so that you can sync the contacts data with Outlook, GMail or your BlackBerry.

PhishTank Detects Phishing Websites by Digg Style Voting

OpenDNS, a free service that helps anyone surf the Internet faster with a simple DNS tweak , will announce PhishTank today. PhishTank is a free public database of phishing URLs where anyone can submit their phishes via email or through the website. The submissions are verified by the other community members who then vote for the suspected site. This is such a neat idea as sites can be categorized just based on user feedback without even having to manually verify each and every submission. PhishTank employs the "feedback loop" mechanism where users will be kept updated with the status' of the phish they submit either via email alerts or a personal RSS feed . Naturally, once the PhishTank databases grows, other sites can harness the data using open APIs which will remain free. OpenDNS would also use this data to improve their existing phishing detection algorithms which are already very impressive and efficient. PhishTank | PhishTank Blog [Thanks Allison] Related: Google
