Is there a service that sends you one feed by merging multiple feeds?

Trying to overcome gmail's limit of 40

I use gmail regularly. I love their webclips feature that gives you one headlines from your feedlist. I'm NOT a huge fan of how they implemented it though. They sometimes give you older entries, they don't get the feeds frequently enough, don't give you many options to tweak it. But worst of all, they limit you to 40 webclips.

I've completely reached my limit and want to add more. So I was thinking, there should be a feed service that I can use to dump feeds that are only updated irregularly and remove them from gmail so I can fit more feeds into my list. Anyone know if this is out there somewhere?

There are a lot of services that will aggregate your feeds. Here are a few I've seen.
  • Yahoo Pipes [pipes.yahoo.com]
  • FeedRinse [feedrinse.com]
  • xFruits [xfruits.com]

    Yahoo! Pipes, great but wasn't able to read some totally normal feeds...
    Feedrinse was great interface...but when I tried to look at output got blank page...
    xFruits didn't give me errors, but it's so slow to add feeds that I never got around to even looking at output...

    back to the drawing board.

    I wish I could publish a feed of one folder from Google Reader but haven't yet figured out how to do it. If not, will try those. Thanks.

    It was tricky to find it, but if you go into manage subscriptions, then to the folders tab, you can click the rss button to make any folder public. I'm all set now :)

    Im trying Yahoo Pipes....works good...my problem im running into however is multiple listings of the same article...anyone know how to maybe weed through duplicates? Anything out there that maybe checks against article titles and will not post duplicates? I try and display my feed and im getting most articles listed two or three times....got to be a way to handle this ?
