So, I have an old iPhone 3GS* that is sitting around unused, and a Bose Sound Dock. Is there an app that can turn these two items into "an Apple TV speaker" so I can have the Soma FMs Christmas Lounge tracks on in the kitchen without making two connections to their server?

Google Drive & Permissions

I'm trying out Google Plus for some lazy web-publishing and seeing continued file-permission strangeness.  Here's an example in case others are experiencing similar and it's reproducible…

Before I begin, the remote machine looks like this:

rjb@buck-16~/Google Drive/xyz/words $ ls -la
total 48
drwxrwxrwx   7 rjb  staff   238  8 Aug 15:45 .
drwxrwxrwx+ 22 rjb  staff   748  8 Aug 15:45 ..
-rwxrwxrwx   1 rjb  staff   341  7 Jun 10:58 404.html
-rwxr-xr-x   1 rjb  staff   321  8 Aug 15:34 defaults.php
-rwxrwxrwx   1 rjb  staff  6462  8 Aug 15:42 index.html
-rwxrwxrwx   1 rjb  staff  3031  6 Jun 22:25 js.html
-rwxrwxrwx   1 rjb  staff   115  6 Jun 20:21 menu.html

I then locally edit `js.html`.  Note the timestamp and permissions:

rjb-mbp:words rjb$ ls -la
total 48
drwxr-xr-x   7 rjb  staff   238  8 Aug 15:41 .
drwxr-xr-x  22 rjb  staff   748  8 Aug 15:42 ..
-rwxr-xr-x   1 rjb  staff   341  7 Jun 10:58 404.html
-rwxr-xr-x   1 rjb  staff   321  8 Aug 15:34 defaults.php
-rwxr-xr-x   1 rjb  staff  6462  8 Aug 15:42 index.html
-rwxr-xr-x   1 rjb  staff  3119  8 Aug 15:50 js.html
-rwxr-xr-x   1 rjb  staff   115  6 Jun 20:21 menu.html

Shortly afterwards on the remote machine it appears thus – note how the modification time is updated (and indeed the file is updated) but neither the original permission, nor those on the machine where the file was edited, are used):

rjb@buck-16~/Google Drive/xyz/words $ ls -la
total 48
drwxrwxrwx   7 rjb  staff   238  8 Aug 15:54 .
drwxrwxrwx+ 22 rjb  staff   748  8 Aug 15:45 ..
-rwxrwxrwx   1 rjb  staff   341  7 Jun 10:58 404.html
-rwxr-xr-x   1 rjb  staff   321  8 Aug 15:34 defaults.php
-rwxrwxrwx   1 rjb  staff  6462  8 Aug 15:42 index.html
-rw——-   1 rjb  staff  3119  8 Aug 15:50 js.html
-rwxrwxrwx   1 rjb  staff   115  6 Jun 20:21 menu.html

This is syncing between a two OS X Mountain Lion machines.

_P.S. I'm using 777 to illustrate the point, that's not normal_ :-)
