We’re excited to announce that Sparrow has been acquired by Google!
We care a lot about how people communicate, and we did our best to provide you with the most intuitive and pleasurable mailing experience.
Now we’re joining the Gmail team to accomplish a bigger vision — one that we think we can better achieve with Google.
We’d like to extend a special thanks to all of our users who have supported us, advised us, given us priceless feedback and allowed us to build a better mail application. While we’ll be working on new things at Google, we will continue to make Sparrow available and provide support for our users.
We had an amazing ride and can’t thank you enough.
Full speed ahead!
Great, now Google is going to scan all my email accounts to give “relevant” crappy ads. No Thank You. I’ll be switching to Mail.app now. Sparrow, you had a good thing going on. (Although, if Google comes to me with a fat check, I would sell too.)

IDC estimated that Apple sold 1.81 million Macs in the U.S. during the quarter that ended June 30, down 1.1% from the 1.83 million machines sold in the same quarter of 2011.
Ok, let’s say that’s true and accurate (this is an estimate, and we know how accurate analyst are). First, is not that big of a deal selling 200,000 units less, considering what the rest of the industry is going through. Second, Apple has been selling more of everything outside of the US for some time now, especially in the Asia Pacific Region. So seeing what is happening in the US only, is a narrow look at what is now a global company, not just an American company. Also, iPad. Even Tim Cook has said that the iPad has taken some sales out of PC’s and Macs.
Anyway, whatever the case may be, we’ll know on the 24th, when Apple does the Conference Call to announce the results for the quarter.
What’s New in Version 9.3.1

One of the first things I thought about when I switched to Mac, was the eternal question of all switchers: Should I put an antivirus on it? Is it necessary?
Apple is reportedly aware of the situation and is ordering new displays to replace defective ones. The bad news, it can take two or three weeks for the displays to get there.
