Some organisations still think that everyone looks at their website via a conventional computer browser. “What about those people on the move?!” I shout. “Do you know how crappy your website looks like when I view it on my phone?

The Taptu search engine helps mobile users find websites that are optimised for touchscreen viewing, and now you can download an application that allows you to select your favourite news topics and RSS feeds, and to view streams geared for mobile users.

And he replied!
