  Wild! An Apple-head roaming free in the Google-plex!   I wonder how many meetings he'll attend where he'll be asked to "recuse himself" and leave due to his known affiliations.   Oh to be a fly on the Googleplex wall - I'd just tail MG around the place...
  Exactly. Not much of a Google "end run", when you consider that all 3rd party browsers on the iOS platform, Chrome included, are little more than "Safari with a 3rd party wrapper", by which I mean Apple's version of mobile WebKit is the underlying browser engine on all iOS devices anyway.   On the plus side, users of Google services now have a "native Google experience" of sorts on iOS devices, but only at the expense of losing the speedy Nitro JavaScript engine that is...
On the iOS platform?   Hah...

"The move circumvents some Apple regulations, namely the inability of third-party developers to have their apps set as the default handlers for certain tasks throughout iOS"   This does not set default handlers for tasks throughout iOS, in that if you quit Gmail, your default web browser reverts to Safari; if you choose not to allow the app to choose Chrome, Safari remains default anyway...   In the case of those choosing Chrome within Gmail, they will merely be...
Just goes to show all those who think Apple is a malicious closed and proprietary monopolist that they can be open-minded about the choices their users want to be able to make, even with regard to a "frenemy" whose mobile OS is regarded as "a stolen product". For me, this presents the chance to evaluate the Google Mail/Video/Mapping/Browsing/Calendaring/Now eco-system and measure it against the clear MacDaddy of them all, iTunes/Safari/Maps/Notes/Contacts and Siri. Fun...
  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...
