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".

Because it significantly drives up the costs of development.

Truely responsive web pages are hard to build, you do need to do device detection (should I server this flash, should I serve this images etc), you have to consider they more limited bandwidth these devices have.

It not just having a responsive layout.
