In the News Okay, so this is entirely new to me. Sparrow is was an email client for Mac OS X and iOS (and Windows), which brought a decent Gmail experience to these platforms - as opposed to Apple's own not-so-good Gmail support and Google's Gmail iOS application which, well, is just a webpage. Google has now acquired Sparrow, and basically all hell has broken loose, to the point of Rian van der Merwe writing that 'we' lost "faith in a philosophy that we thought was a sustainable way to ensure a healthy future for independent software development, where most innovation happens".

Who don't you stop whining like a spoiled child?

You got what you paid for.

If I were Sparrow's developper, I'd consider pushing and triggering a death switch in my app just to give you idiots a real reason to whine.

Wow, get bent.

I was not complaining like a spoiled child. I, in fact, got more then I paid for. 5 bucks is nothing (could be a lot to you, I guess...). The app was great, worth more then 5 silly dollars. If you bothered to take 2 seconds to consider what I was saying, it was the optics of the whole thing.
