Why can’t we have nice things?

“Google buys Sparrow, current apps will not get any new features”


“Facebook acquires iOS and Mac developer Acrylic, makers of Wallet and RSS reader Pulp”

Acrylic says that Pulp and Wallet have not themselves been acquired by Facebook, but there are no plans to keep developing them.


Of course, if Google or Facebook or Microsoft or Victor Von Doom showed up at my door with a big sack full of money and another sack full of blow and another sack full of hot cosplayers, rest assured I would jump into the car with them without a single care about whether I had left on the iron or the gas burner or the laser-shooting machine that Tony Stark uses to make new elements.
