Yahoo! Pipes -Dynamic Translation for Feeds!

This week's major release and screaming is all about Yahoo! Pipes. Of course I'm excited about it too. Yahoo! Pipes is an interactive feed aggregator/manipulator.

I just built my first Pipe - a translation pipe for German version of Reddit using the Babel Fish module. One could clone this and use this for any feed translation from any language. Click here to access the Pipe!

I expected this kind of service for a while and there could be a new/similar service to create Widgets/Gadgets in a similar fashion. Apple Dashboard, Google Gadget IDE, Visual Studio Gadget API provide this on a proprietary platform but more generic ones will emerge.
