Trying FeedRinse
A view of my RSS filters

I signed up for a free FeedRinse account this morning. FeedRinse allows you to filter your RSS feeds so that you can get rid of the stuff you don't want.

The free version of the service allows 5 filters. I was worried at first because I have dozens and dozens of feeds in my OPML file. I figured I would run out too quickly. However, after doing it, I only ended up using 3 filters:

1. I filtered "NBA" out of the Blog Maverick feed
2. I filtered "cellphone" out of the Engadget feed (I wonder if there is anything left!)
3. I filtered "HDTV listings" from the HD Beat feed

While it is cool to be able to do this, I wonder how useful this service will ultimately be to most people considering I only came up with 3 filters for over 50 feeds. I guess I'll give it a little more time to before I decide.
