Fist bump

Bump, the file sharing app, has been around for some time and now its just been acquired by Google. Its not totally clear what Google plans to do with this acquisition, however it makes for a more interesting interface between technologies in my opinion. Airdrop has been released with iOS7 and its all well and good, but Google is going to turn the Bump transfer system into an iconic feature (much like *sliding* on an iPhone) with future devices its developing (Glass, among other things). Just pull up the app, and press the spacebar on your laptop with your phone. DONE.
