Great for Google and remail, I guess. Bad move though to discontinue support and have users stranded. I know MS wouldn't get away with it and Apple would get lots of hate mail too. Let's hope Google stays sane. Seems like they're going the wrong way. (Just when I started to think about Android to be on my next phone.)

Wow, Google has done a better job destroying Apple in the past months (or even weeks)than Microsoft in 15 years. The end of the iPhone era is coing very quickly.

The correct connotation would be:

All your app are belong to us!

Dark? They are doing this in retaliation for all their apps that were banned from the app store! I support google in this decision, Apple shouldn't get away with their arbitrary anti competitive bullshit!

500MB is a sliver? My phone has 8GB of space and only 7.08GB is actually available to me. 500MB is 14% of all available space on the device; that's hardly a sliver.

I think this move is bordering on evil. It's at least hateful.

But I'm not dissing Google. I think it is a good business strategy move.

This is no different than when Nvidia bought Aegia for the PhysX technology. I think it's retaliation for Apple pulling Google off the default search for the Safari browser in Macs, iPods and iPhones. There are always consequences in life for each decision made. Both parties will live or not live with the decisions.
