Yahoo's beta testing SMS News Alerts



Yahoo is now beta testing sending all their alerts via (including the latest news, weather, stocks, email notifications, and instant messages) SMS text message to cellphones. The main problem with this service (as well as other SMS news services) is all you get is a headline and not the story, which makes us think that they should really just offer a mobile device-friendly text-only email option, especially since most modern phones can check email these days. We signed up for Google news alerts using a special email account we'd set up for our cellphones (yes, we own more than one) and that's working out just fine so far (no spam from them either).
