  One of the more amusing ironies generated by the above reality can be seen in bookshops and stationers all around the world, where rack upon rack of colourful PC enthusiast and professional magazines are on display, each and every one of them laid out, styled and published using Apple Macs, from glossy cover to glossy cover, and from little advert to large sales campaign.   Ditto for browsing the Web, watching TV/DVD or catching a movie at the cinema, where all the...
    Problems like: How can we have, instantly available to us from the Cloud anywhere we happen to be, Penelope Garcia from the BAU, Abby Sciuto from NCIS and Finch from "Person of Interest", to solve in real-time any logistical questions and decision-making issues when they crop up as obstacles to be negotiated successfully, right now...???                                
 
  AirDrop accomplishes similar via Wi-Fi, and this is an extension of that functionality via proximity technologies like Bluetooth, NFC etc.   There may also be patent obstacles in the way of the method as you have suggested, hence this may well be a workaround.   Having an absolute address for a file should also obviate the need for parent or child folders; an "intelligent clipboard" could store copies as necessary, so that things work without returning to outdated...
Yawn. Who cares? My GMail account is of secondary utility value at best, serving mainly as an account to validate favourite blogs and sites and similar functions. Nothing in my affairs that is commercial, financial or logistical is directed there, no fear... I tried enabling push on the standalone GMail app years ago, but wasn't happy with the extra notification badges cluttering my screen and disabled it. My several legacy iOS devices still have push support for the...

Just goes to show that in Technology, as in politics, there are no permanent friends (Forstall) or permanent enemies (Lynch). My long-term money's on a triumphant return of Scott from the Antarctic...
It's becoming globally fashionable to bas Apple...
Quote: In showing off the new Galaxy S 4, Samsung didn't draw attention to Google's search, mapping or translations services, nor even its ability to download Google Play content. It didn't feature Android apps.  Applying reason and logic, it's appropriate to say that "Where there's smoke, there's fire".   And for me, the tell-tale black billowing cloud was the downplaying of evidently superior software like Google Now in favour of S-Voice and other lesser Samsung...
Well, just subtract Reading and Basingstoke in Hampshire, Bristol in Avon, Leeds in Yorkshire, Newport in Gwent, and London, all in the UK, from the "rest of the world".   Places where I've personally tested Apple Maps and it's done the job, switched over to Transit apps for public transport (Reading), given accurate turn-by-turn directions in the dead of night (Bristol), found and directed a walk to a train station (Bristol) and a hotel  (Newport) as well as a cash till...
