Apple Opens Up to Google

Google Voice browsing is now available for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.
Along with this, Google has brought a whole new level of functionality to these devices: Chrome and Google apps.
This is a very big change and innovation, like having a whole new device.
This is also a new departure for Apple if it stands.    It represents competition.
Although others may disagree, I think Apple will benefit from it.    It is a major benefit to the user.
Apple’s real competitive edge is not in restricting to Apple, but in innovating devices others do not have, along with ease of use, and freedom from trouble.
If I were Apple, I would bring out a much lighter tablet, using a new low power processor and a smaller battery.   The buying public will pay for such innovation.

The new Google Voice search app is now up and running---I have tested it on iPad and Touch.
To be included are Siri-like voice actions, such as weather (the only action that worked for me at this time)
