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".

While VLC has it's problems I've never seen it screw up that badly.


Eh, I don't really see a noticeable difference except maybe on the subtitles.

it's more a library used by front-ends, analogous to Winamp & external.


I prefer SMPlayer to VLC and it is pretty sweet on both Linux and Windows.
