Get your RSS feeds delivered via e-mail

There are many ways to read RSS feeds on a mobile device. Some of this has been discussed previously here, and the situation is improving rapidly as the mobile device RSS tools get better and better.

Well, here's one completely different approach. An RSS news feed that comes to you via your inbox. You will certainly need a cheap data plan for this to be practical on a mobile device, or a mail program that allows you to only upload and download email when you are synching rather than over the air (anyone have a reliable and still-maintained email program like that for the Treo 650?)

But this is also an interesting idea for those who don't have too many RSS feeds, and need a way to keep from spending the whole day checking their feeds. It's pretty addictive and fun to do that, but we all need to put limits on ourselves so we can get some work done.

This free service is called Squeet, and it "can send you new entries as they become available, once every day, or once every week. Squeet also has add-ons for Internet Explorer, Firefox, and the Google Toolbar for easy subscription. If you’ve never felt comfortable using an RSS reader or you’ve found you have trouble controlling how often you check your feeds, sending a daily digest of your favorite RSS feeds to your email inbox might be the solution you’re looking for."

That's cool! Another similar service is R-Mail. For instance, using this feed and Squeet, you can have the showtimes of the ten top TV shows of the day delivered to your inbox every morning And since the feed only updates once a day, you won't get flooded with mail.
