Yep, I agree, it sounds like he was using Chrome to Phone. Since it was released a few months ago, I have been using it all the time. You have to install the extension on your Chrome browser (and yes, you have to use Chrome) and install the app on your Android device. It doesn't have to be a tablet, it works just fine with phones if you are running Android 2.2+, and the app is quite small. After you get it set up, which is very simple, you just click the button on your browser and whatever you are viewing is pushed onto your Android device. I use it a lot with directions for outside meetings: when I do a search on my desktop, it pushes it onto the map app on my Android. It is free, by the way, and well worth a try. http://chrome.google.com/extensions/
