Google to end cookie free login support on mobile devices

Chances are you won't be affected by this, but I figure I'll give you a heads-up anyway. Google will soon end app support on mobile devices that don't support cookies. This primarily means that older phones, most of them in Japan as the web giant points out, will no longer be able to log in to Google services. Some, like search and Maps, which don't require you to log in, will still be available through the aging browsers, but things like Calendar will not. The change will go into effect on May 1st, so, if you're still using a six-year-old flip phone to check your Gmail, you might want to get a new device. Maybe a smartphone.
