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".

Well.. I just installed the ad supported version of Sparrow to see what all the fuss is about, and it's very nice. I can't really say I'm missing much, the adds are small and unobtrusive and I think I'm going to use it as my default for a few weeks to see how I get on with it.
