Google integration

A huge benefit of the Nexus 7 is the Google integration. It has the Chrome browser, and with it comes a connection back to my desktop, so logins and tabs are shared, as well as smoothly integrated single sign-on to apps requesting Google credentials. Add to that excellent integration with calendars, contacts, emails, photographs, and every other part of my life Google mediates -- all without the subscription needed for iCloud on the iPad -- and life is extremely simple. One innovation I like in Jelly Bean is the Google Now app, which uses information about my location and searches to suggest things I'll find useful to know, like journey times and flight details.
