Yes, but you're still going to need an internet connection to load the
site in the first place, and you're still going to need one whenever
you sync. In the hypothetical situation described in the
'advertisement', both would apply. Besides, I don't see the iPhone
having an implementation of Google Gears in the near future, since
Apple have completely closed the platform to native apps. :)
