Microsoft Microsoft has just responded to Google's move regarding Exchange ActiveSync. Sadly, instead of addressing the very real problems consumers are about to face, Microsoft starts talking about switching to Outlook.com.

Ok, but does it currently support CalDav and CardDav? These are the pieces needed to be open, versus the EAS crap.

I await your Kool-Aid flavored answer.

No. I never claimed it did, or disputed someone saying it didn't.

I think it's a miss that WP8 doesn't natively support Contact and Calendar syncing from say iCloud, something like that should be a scenario they aim for if they wish to convert people over to Windows Phone.

However, I only prefer it because its a migration path, I still find EAS to be superior because I actually value my device's battery life and enjoy true push.

That enough Kool-Aid for you ?
