Support Your Favorite Apps and Services

Marco Arment, creator of Instapaper, in response to the acquisition of Sparrow by Google and Acrylic Software by Facebook:

If you want to keep the software and services around that you enjoy, do what you can to make their businesses successful enough that it’s more attractive to keep running them than to be hired by a big tech company.

A good reason to support developers by paying for the apps and services you enjoy.
