Sparrow Acquired by Google ➝

Sparrow’s Dom Leca, in an email to current users:

We will continue to make available our existing products, and we will provide support and critical updates to our users. However, as we’ll be busy with new projects at Google, we do not plan to release new features for the Sparrow apps.

Not really what I want to hear from the maker of my favorite email client. I’ll hold onto Sparrow as long as I can but it’s inevitable — I’m going to be switching back to Apple Mail.

Another quick thought: how long can big companies continue to acquire and shutter applications and web services before everyone starts to realize that these big companies don’t care about their users?
