Reuters Mobile wholly dissected
Reuters has a new mobile service offering 10 headline stories accompanied with full color photos (via PhoneMag and textually.org). The service requires you to download the Mediabricks Media Viewer, a customizable J2ME Java application that is compatible with various handsets.
I spent a few minutes looking at the Java midlet and found out that you can also access the news articles directly via your browser. I am sure with a small PHP or Perl script you could quickly write your own news engine. Rest assured, Reuters doesn't support it, or they would have made this information available first place (or even better: offer news articles in XML format). So it's up to you what you do with it. Here we go:
The general url is: http://reutersnews.co.uk/mb/servlet/MorfServlet?service=TopNews&category=reuters-ad&spkey=Reuters.Ad.UK&country=us&dev=7650&object=
Before you can use it you must fill in the last parameter 'object'. See further below.
