Months ago I read that Lance Armstrong would receive a message on his Blackberry when an article with his name appeared in it. I am wondering how that was accomplished, be it a normal function (doubtful) or a piece of software. I suppose it's possible that it was actually a web software forwarding RSS, but it mentioned that the article mentioned his name, as if in a search command. Also, I beleive the article was mentioning spring 2004. I wasn't aware of RSS at that time. Does anyone know how to accomplish this as it would be very useful to have this for my company to get industry news this way?
The e-mail functionality goes without question, but how many of you use a Blackerry (particularly, but not limited to the non-phone-type models) as phone device heavily without a headset, and does it work well?
Many thanks for your help and my apologies if my searches have missed something here.
1) Lance Armstrong most likely had a news clipping service that forwarded articles with his name in them to his blackberry. Many celebrities use this type of service.
2) My 7250 works just fine as a phone with or without a headset (wired or bluetooth).
