Google cuts Gmail app support from BlackBerry

It was announced this week that Google will officially stop support for the native Gmail app for BlackBerry devices starting on November 22nd, this move effectively telling RIM that it'll have to rely on its in-browser iteration if it plans on getting any kind of future support officially.

I'd say yes, but Google seems to be announcing the change carefully so as not to upset those who've already got the app working on their devices - Google, do you see BlackBerry's end of life in your scopes?

Android Market blocked by Chinese Government

Android Market blocked by Chinese Government

It appears that China and Google are butting horns again, this time with Google on the losing end with a complete block of their mobile OS Android's apps market being completely blocked throughout several major regions in the country.
