I have a cybook and I've been playing around with the mobipocket rss to ebook function
(called ebook news or something like that?)

Is it me, or does it suck really bad?

I enter the RSS feeds, and most of the time it won't grab a series of articles, or if it does, you have to manually choose each article.

I've only gotten two of the rss feeds to get to my cybook; the rest of them are practically impossible to get more than a single article.

Oddly when I hit preview on the desktop reader for these RSS ebooks, the actual web pages appear (as if it were a web browser) making it impossible to know if the ebook is actually being made.

When I try the update and sync, nothing seems to change.

Can anyone tell me if I'm doing something wrong? Or does mobipocket reader just suck?

Does anyone know if Web2book or other rss conversion programs are adequate substitutes on mobipocket?

Most of all I want the ability to have one button auto update and sync on cybook.

Anyone have ideas or workarounds?
