This is something I've been meaning to try out. You'd probably get stuck with some ads, but that way you could keep the comments section, couldn't you?
Yes, you can. But you should avoid PDF. If you just saved in HTML and then converted to EPUB, the result would be much nicer than the PDF conversion.

I was thinking the same thing when I read this post. But after some thinking, I believe the advantage of this system is you can use the Calibre fetch news function to automatically aggregate all the individual pages you 'bookmark'.

So rather then manually saving, converting, and transferring each article to the Kobo manually, you get a RSS feed type thing that is automated.
