Jack Daniel’s Sends the Most Polite Cease-and-Desist Letter Ever–Mashable Business

Read the entire article here at Mashable Business.

In what might just be the nicest cease-and-desist letter ever, the people at Jack Daniel’s Properties not only politely explained the situation to Wensink, the offending author, the company even offered to help pay for the cost of designing a new cover.

Jack Daniel’s Properties isn’t even forcing Wensink to take his book off the shelf. Instead, the company just wants him to change the cover when it’s reprinted.

Sparrow — Get mail done -is Done (Update)

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.

Several major companies, including Google, are working on getting elaborate 3D maps online. This latest iteration of Google maps for Android-powered devices allows users to browse select cities in a 3D fashion. Utilizing aerial imagery, the buildings appear in a three-dimensional format, which can aid people navigating their way around an unfamiliar urban environment. Visitors can customize their own views with the “tilt” and “compass” mode features, which makes things a bit more fun.
