Talk to me, e-mail: Messages that can be heard

The International Herald Tribune, amongst others, is reporting on a service being delivered by mail.com and developed by outblaze that will allow emails to be converted from text-to-speech and delivered by podcast to be listened to when away from the PC.

Whilst I can see the benefits of this for people with particularly disabilities, I don't think that this is particularly beneficial to most email users. My reasons are as follows

The same doesn't hold true for "listening" to newspapers or magazine articles - no action is required or subsequent maintenance. That's why otodio's service could take-off.
