Of course you’re using a RSS reader to check your feeds. But don’t you just love the feeling of reading a newspaper or magazine? Well, take a look at Hewlett-Packards Tabbloid. This free service converts the latest posts of your favorite blogs into a printable PDF.

Tabbloid is very easy to use. Surf to their website, enter your favorite feeds, your e-mail address and decide when you want to recieve your magazine. Tabbloid compiles the feeds and mails a printable PDF to you.

Personally I love the idea. Reading from paper is much more relaxed than reading from a screen. But I have to admit I wouldn’t use it. Why not? Well, links, embedded video and other dynamic stuff don’t work on print. And that’s to much too give up for me.
