DailyMe - Online news at your doorstep

If you like reading newspaper style news, as well as online style, DailyMe may be for you. It aims to give you content you like, in a sort of digest form every morning for example. It tries to mimic the experience of reading the morning paper as closely as possible and does a quite good job of it too.

First you have to choose the types of content you want to read about. I was surprised at how well this is structured, although it is a bit slow, perhaps this will change with time. There are a few top level categories like sports, science, financial news, you then choose a second level category, but you can also choose keywords to go with them, further narrowing your news.

So far this can be achieved via RSS if you're good, although you can't monitor thousands of feeds really effectively and you won't get the newspaper feel. DailyMe has the answer for that as well though

Imagine waking at 8:00 to find your daily digest printed and ready for reading beside a nice dose of your favorite cereal.

Update: DailyMe is still available, although I'm not quite sure it is the same service as before as Daniel reviewed it back then. The site looks different but gives you options to personalize your news on the site by creating an account.

It looks pretty much like a mix of Reddit - without the voting and user commenting - and a regular newspaper. It is however an aggregator that links to multiple newspaper sites that you can visit to read the full article.
