Sparrow -- Get mail done -is Done (Update)

| No Comments
Sparrow has been acquired by Google!  Development has been stopped.  The Sparrow team is now working on Google products.  Sparrow will not be updated. Users are left high and dry.

Remember those stories about car companies which bought innovations so they could squelch them?  All those engines which run on tap water are still in a closet somewhere. Sparrow, the minimalist email client, which had developed a cult following, especially among mobile users, is dead...bought out by Google and shut away in that same closet.

Maybe this explains the recent Sparrow 50% off sale, we mentioned in our blurb last week.    Perhaps someone will come up with a new email client with Thunderbird and Sparrow being shut down within days of each other.
