Google Fiber integration with iRule?

I live in Raleigh and it is expected to be announced in about 30 minutes that Raleigh (in addition to Charlotte, Atlanta, Knoxville) will be joining Austin, Kansas City (KS or MO? or both?) and Provo as Google Fiber cities.

Needless to say, Google has an IP app (both Android and iOS- can you imagine Steve Jobs having an Android app for an Apple product?) for cable control. Any idea about integration of the Google cable app with iRule? No rush- fiber is at least 4 months away at an absolute minimum.

Each device on a subnet MUST have it's OWN unique IP address. More than one device CANNOT use the same IP address. So if your phone & tablet were on the same address then that needs to change. It's very likely you'll have to reset your routers and switches to clear the ARP tables (the behind the scenes protocol for resolving IP to MAC addresses). Most are capable of resolving this on their own but a power cycle (AFTER you correct the device overlaps) will certainly clear it.

Best bet, again, is to set as many things as possible to use static addresses but ALSO set up DHCP leases on the router for them. That way you have a 'belt and suspenders' approach to making sure devices will always been on the same addresses. Absolutely do this for fixed devices like printers, servers, DVRs, etc... things that won't change unless hardware is replaced. For tablets and the like it's not "as necessary" but it does help avoid a lot of potential problems.
Yes both the tablet and the phone use the same IP address but only one is running iRule at a time. Two devices running iRule at a time was the first thing I checked.

Just curious why would you have two devices with the same IP addresses actually is that possible when both are connected to your network, doesn't that create all sorts of issues?
