RSS Integration in Outlook 12

Michael Arrington at TechCrunch has posted that next Outlook release will have RSS integrated as announced by Outlook program manager Michael Affronti. Surely, a step towards widening the user base of RSS.

It's easy to make people try out new technologies on a browser with hype and curiosity, but majority of such audience is ephemeral.

Bring it to the desktop - if it's truly valuable, it'll change people's life.

What about the basic 'Use-Anywhere' and sharing feature. Did you get a chance to peek in for the new yahoo mail alpha?

And what about the freedom of working offline? Internet is inherently unreliable media, and I dread the day of network outage, having no access to my old stuff and having no control whatsoever.
IMO, 'Use anywhere' as a necessity is a myth at best. How many times do you need to check your mail when you are not in your office/home? If you do, you most probably will be having a blackberry/cellphone with email facility already.
Sharing, probably. I agree - web is more convenient( and Yahoo's MyWeb2). Yet, how many times do you visit links by an arbitrary person? Firefox extentions like Bookmark synchronizer (FTP Sync) almost solve the problem.
I, for myself, was never hooked to RSS until I used a desktop aggregator.

Hey Abhishek, last I checked I was still in queue for yahoo mail(beta?). It'll be great if you can spare me an invite. I've seen the reviews and it looks promising.
