Windows So, just as Windows Phone 7.8 has finally started rolling out to devices, Microsoft and Google kiss and make up about the whole dropping of EAS thing. Google has extended its EAS support for Windows Phone users for six months, and Microsoft will add CardDAV and CalDAV support to Windows Phone (but not Windows 8/RT, so those users are still screwed by Microsoft's incompetence).

Wasn't the whole point of this cross-merging of not only the Windows UI but the underpinnings of the os meant to bring functional parity between the various Phone/RT/PC devices at some point? Surely it wouldn't be much effort to implement these across all Windows platforms unless, of course, Microsoft is just acting with their usual incompetence. It would seem that, if the end is to bring each platform into line with the other, there'd be no better time to start doing that than now.
