Google Play Music for iPhone review

After the longest "few weeks" in history – 24 to be precise – Google FINALLY released Google Play Music for iPhone. With little in the way of explanation for why it took so long, many of us gave up waiting and took our music needs elsewhere. Sure, there are some excellent third-party Google Music clients already available on iOS, but for something such as this you need an official client for the platform in order to take it seriously.

So, it's here, but is it any good, and was it worth the wait? Let's find out.

Google Drive for iOS update adds multiple account support, single sign-in

Google Drive for iOS has received a fairly significant update, adding support for single sign-in, multiple accounts and proper iOS 7 support. Single sign-in lets you sign in to a Google app just by selecting your account if you're signed in to another Google app already installed on your device. This has been rolling out slowly across Google's suite of iOS apps, and is particularly convenient for those of us using many different Google services.

Indistinguishable from evil

I like to riff on Arthur C. Clarke by saying any company, sufficiently large, is indistinguishable from evil. I've used it before when Google failed to respect copyrights, trademarks, and, through their Motorola subsidiary engaged in a horrendous violation of the very spirit of standards-essential patents. And I'm using it again now to describe the actions of the Rockstar consortium - the entity that purchased Nortel and Novell patents, bankrolled by Apple, Microsoft, BlackBerry, and others. They've now sued Google over search-related patents, which is an attack against the heart of Google's business, and it smacks of patent trolling, which is a fairly revolting practice.
