Read RSS feeds as folders in Outlook

Thanks to Dave for pointing me to maybe a even better solution for my RSS-antipathy. NewsGator imports RSS feeds into folders in Outlook and you can track and manage all of your RSS content within the application.


With NewsGator Inbox, you can get all your news and information delivered right to your Microsoft Outlook® folders. Forget about all those hours spent searching the web for information. Now you can read your news and information whenever you want. You don’t even have to be online.


Blastfeed: If you also dislike RSS readers and prefer a daily email digest of RSS postings

Earlier I tried a “send-me-RSS-entries-via-email-daily” service but had to look for something else (It was Feedmailer, but the people running it can’t get it to work…).

Now I found Blastfeed and it looks promising. The concept is easy:

  • You select the RSS feeds to be monitored
  • You can define filters for the content of the RSS feeds
  • You can arrange the feeds into “channels” (=one or more emails a day)
  • You get the results via email, IM or RSS (as it happens or once a day)

Its architect, Blaise Aguera y Arcas, shows it off in this standing-ovation demo.

EJSChart takes web charting to a new level by incorporating such features as automatic axis scaling, zooming, scrolling, smart ticks and Ajax-driven data loading.

This is IMHO an exciting new technology…
