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".

The initial capital of the foundation came from an illegal monopoly and their ways for making money are still the same.

If that money was still in the economy instead that would have been a lot better I think.

So, your problem is that now having more money than god, they are using that money to help other's around the world?

Don't late your brand hatred blind you to good things an organization may do.
