Google Notifier Has Finally Been Retired

Although Google had warned on the 10th January earlier this year, Google Notifier Beta had still been working fine for some until a day or so ago. The email stated that “Starting on January 31, 2014, Google Notifier Beta will no longer be supported, meaning the app will no longer show recent emails and calendar events.” Google now recommends enabling Desktop Notifications in Gmail and Calendar or installing the Gmail Checker Chrome app, though the minority who still use PowerPC Macs (such as myself) will be out of luck since Chrome is of course Intel only which is kind of a shame really.
