Yes, Robin Good's Latest News now offers Microsoft® Alerts!

This service lets you receive important messages through your MSN® Messenger or Windows® Messenger, your e-mail, or your mobile device.

You can choose how and when you receive these messages by specifying your preferences during the easy setup process.

Officially Microsoft Alerts "are instant messages that you create and your customers, business partners, and employees choose to receive directly from your company.

Alerts are a convenient way to reach people on the move, because the information can be routed to a variety of devices including desktop computers, cell phones, and wireless PDAs." This is how Microsoft describes one of its latest information products, which can have indeed an endless number of useful applications.

You can sign-up for a free 30-day trial of Microsoft Alerts right here.

Here is what you need to do to get Robin Good Latest News in real-time to your preferred communication device.
Just go here and follow the simple instructions.

Once you have signed up you can customize the Microsoft Alerts to your preferences by choosing where and under which circumstances the good news shall be delivered to you.

To follow my humble reporting there is no need for this fancy technology, but if your business warrants that you be the first to know when somebody or someone writes on her site or news blog, then Microsoft Alerts can go a step beyond your normal news aggregator.

If you can stand Microsoft PassPort this is definitely something to try.

*Thanks to Marjolein Hoekstra for setting this up.

I still like RSS feeds best for information like Robin Good Latest News. It allows me to separate reading e-mail (from people I know and interact with personally) from reading news and blogs and other internet activities. I use a stand-alone RSS reader rather than integrating it with my e-mail.
