This is a plea to Google to keep pushing forward with development on Sparrow alive(under it's name or another) and set an example for other talent acquisitions.
Recently it has been announced that Goole has acquired the development team responsible for the wildly successful email client for Mac and iPhone, Sparrow. According to the CEO of Sparrow, future feature development will be ceased.
In this age of fierce competition for the best talent, companies like Google are quickly acquiring passionate entrepreneurs while killing off technology paid for, used, and loved by millions.
This is not a dig on Dom Leca, CEO of Sparrow, or Google. I congratulate him on his reward for building such a fantastic piece of software and wish him and his team the best of luck moving forward, and respect Google's need to continue building an innovative organization.
