    I'm trying to use airdrop to send stuff from my phone to my laptop, neither one recognizes each other, is this not possible? Why would they not allow this?

    Because they are backward :(

    A major clanger yet again by Apple. I don't know if this will still remain the case with mavericks though.

    It has not. No Wifi Direct in Macs hardware=no as hoc wifi networks = no Airdrop with iOS devices. It's also why older ios devices don't support airdrop.
