    I'm really excited about this one. It will be really nice for things like maps.google.com. I can map out my trip whether it be by car or bike and push it to my phone without having to look it up again.

    Also being able to use the store from the web will be really cool.

    I can't wait to see what dev end up doing with this.

    It adds a button to Chrome on your desktop and sends things to your Android device. And it's smart enough to know what to do with them like automatically open maps or your browser.

    I can't wait for this either. No I can stop using Google Voice to SMS myself links.

    I do this daily now. If I look up directions on my PC, when I enter the first couple of parts of the address the Droid, Maps pulls it up. Much easier to type and route my day on a PC than the phone

    Ha Ha. I didn't even notice the mistake. Can you tell I have the cloud on my mind? It's Chrome to Phone.

    Yeah - I think this is going to be pretty sweet:

    During a demo of the cloud messaging feature, Google showed how it can be used to push directions from Google Maps in Chrome on a desktop computer directly onto an Android device. The Android map application on the handset opened and displayed the same directions that the user was viewing in the browser on the desktop.
