XFruits does Mail to RSS; Lotus Domino 8 goes beta

XFruits: The startup building mashups around RSS, today launched another brick as part of their service – Mail to RSS. The service is self explanatory and easy to setup. You can get RSS for your POP3, IMAP4 and Gmail accounts. If you haven’t been to XFruits before you would definitely find all of their mashup builders useful. In all 8 till now – Aggregator RSS, RSS to Web, RSS to mobile, Post to RSS, RSS to PDF, RSS to Mail, RSS to OPML, OPML to mobile, and the new addition Mail to RSS. Nothing much left to say out here except that can take your content places much easily.

Lotus Domino 8: IBM enterprise collaboration platform is playing the catchup game with the launch of Domino 8 public beta. Mail recall, easier deployment and management, web services enabled, activity sidebar are just of the new features. Features aside, looking at the way enterprises move ahead with such major upgrades, it will be another couple of years before larger number of IBM clients finally settle down in the new release. Just imagine where Google Apps will be in another 2 years where upgrades showup in the blink of an eye. Who would you go for?
