Is it really a time-saver?
How about negatives or unintended consequences?
How does it help Google's advertising revenues?
What will it do for advertising clients?
What happens to SEO?

hacked one together previously.)
Is continuous scroll coming next?
If mobile is such a big deal, why release this on PC/Mac first?
What about the server side? What's happening there? (Caffeine, etc.)
