Santa Cruz Tech and PubSub have announced the launch of FeedBeep, an Internet-driven service providing real-time RSS alerts to Short Message Service (SMS) enabled phones and mobile devices.

PubSub currently monitors more than nine million Internet sources and currently provides a notification service to users.

FeedBeep utilizes PubSub’s search technology to monitor RSS feeds and the blogosphere using keyword search. FeedBeep then forwards important events in the form of alerts to subscribers’ cellular phones or other SMS-enabled mobile devices. Using PubSub, FeedBeep delivers instant access to important news.

“FeedBeep and PubSub now provide the final link between people and the Internet’s wealth of information,” said Robert Wyman, CTO and co-founder, PubSub Concepts. “PubSub’s relationship with FeedBeep allows users to receive the critical information they want when ever and wherever they want it, either at their computer or on the move. With access to instant information updates in blogs, news releases or other critical alerts, people are empowered to respond using the very latest and most relevant information.”

    FeedBeep provides SMS alerts for any rss format feed, not just those from Pubsub. Somehow in most of the coverage Pubsub is overshadowing the developer Santa Cruz Tech. Feedbeep’s service is indeed greatly enhanced by using Pubsub’s technology but it does not depend on it.
