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".

Oh right you're completely innocent, you just chose a headline that denigrates closed source by chance.

I'm gonna go write a story on AIDs entitled:

Man with AIDs shows dangers of being gay.

I'm just reporting the facts. I have a follow up story on how living in a black neighborhood increases the risk of getting mugged. I've never said I'm against living in a black neighborhood. Just reporting the dangers of living in a black neighborhood, that's all. I'm fair and balanced.
