There is no very simple way as it needs to involve a script or some
programming. The former path involves stitching some bits of Lego, whereas
the latter can be tough and prone to bad handling of exceptions, of which
there are plenty. Here is what I would do:

* Use a grabber or a downloading tool (not a browser) to fetch the feed/s.

 Example: wget http://news.google.com/news?hl=en&q=#+#&ie=UTF-8&output=rss

          where #'s are the pertinent search terms.

To be impartial:

 wget http://news.search.yahoo.com/news/rss?p=#+#&ei=UTF-8&fl=0&x=wrt

To get more option, see the wget manual pages ('man wget')

* Get a free RSS parser, e.g.


* Follow documentation that accompanies the tool

That's all there is to say, I guess, unless one echoes the manuals, which are
usually extensive and include plenty of examples.

Good luck!
