Search engine giant Google has swung their online big stick once again by purchasing the widely popular iPhone and Macintosh email app Sparrow.
A spokesperson for the search engine mainstay stated that Google will keep Sparrow running and continue to provide the proper support for the application. However, they do not anticipate offering any substantial update in the near future.

Sparrow's CEO Dom Leca did not seem to have any bitterness in regards to the groundbreaking merger.
He blogged the following comments concerning his new partnership with Google:
"Now we're joining the Gmail team to accomplish a bigger vision -- one that we think we can better achieve with Google."
Verge claimed that the purchase price of the deal was "just under $25 million." Although, the financial details have not been revealed at this time.
First hitting the general public through Apple's Mac store in February of 2011, Sparrow went on to become the highest grossing app in a mere 24 hours. It is a simplified user interface that is very similar to Tweetie or iOS.
Google has had their monetary plate full as of late. They also acquired the social advertising company Meebo just last month for a supposed $100 million dollars.
