Apple Acquires MailShare -- Apple announced last week that it has acquired both Glenn Anderson and his excellent program MailShare, an SMTP and POP Internet mail server for the Mac.

Glenn will be moving to Cupertino from New Zealand to work for Apple as a software engineer. It's nice to see additional recognition of Internet talent from Apple - particularly if Apple pays Glenn's moving expenses. [GD]
