This is not an answer to your question, sorry. But you can host your own reader. I can recommend tiny-tiny-rss, which also has a nice android client (two, actually). To get the content instead of the short description, you can try full-text-rss (you can host this yourself as well). It does not work perfect (esp. heise content is missing in a lot of articles), but improves the situation. I expect a good solution based on emacs to be hard to set up, because of heavy image/markup/codesnippet/..-use in many articles and because of syncing. But I'll follow this thread and would be habby to be proven wrong... Regards, Andreas
