Custom Yahoo! news feeds

Yahoo! lets you subscribe to news over RSS feeds, which is very cool. To make things even better, Jeremy Zavodny, generally extremely cool Internet developer dude, has posted a tool to let you use your own search terms in the Yahoo! feeds. Yahoo! News tracks a lot of stuff, so this is incredibly useful for keeping tabs on what is happening in areas of interest to you.

My one tiny little gripe is that your search term is tagged with tags in the feed, and NetNewsWire Lite will for some reason show the tag rather than render it, but that is just one of those small imperfections that make you appreciate the whole so much more.
