    Thanks guys!
    Now, in return for your kind words & reps, another news .mobi site:

    imooty.mobi




    http://www.imooty.mobi/ Recently launched

    http://www.imooty.eu/world.php# Main site launched just last August 2007, based in Berlin.
    *What I find so exciting about this company is that its a news aggregator for news professionals ( as all sites introduced in this thread are in the same line) but, Imooty.eu is a brand new company & in about seven months upon launching their main site, launched this .mobi site.

    In August 2007, a European newspaper aggregator venture, dubbed Imooty.eu, was launched in beta version (read background here, based on a profile by the Online Journalism Review). Over the weekend, Imooty has launched a new headline aggregator widget for newspapers to implement on their sites (pictured left - see their widget platform here).

    Imooty's "plan is really to develop a powerful tool for news syndication," said co-founder Kristoffer Lassen (who founded the site with Blaise Bourgeois). "The purpose is to democratize access to the most important mainstream information sources of Europe." The site now aggregates RSS feeds with latest headlines from about 450 newspapers in 19 European countries.

    Nawww, You'll wear that crown for all eternity! I won't remove you off your throne cookie .

    I like to sleuth things. And as I have just reached my 6th months mark last month in this world , still a noob. And as a noob, finding these .mobi sites, learning what that particular industry is like(albeit topically) ; why they went .mobi, how & why of it all leads me to some more knowledge into things.

    It is also a way to give these new sites a coverage & awareness to the public; not just for this forum but, as these threads gets indexed in the search engines, more opportunity for the general public to come across .mobi as well.

    Finally, I love to check up on my user CP and reading other member's warm words of encouragement to me sealed with the lovely green emerald/rep square next to it. Girl can always use more baubles to accesorize! Win-Win!
