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.

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 ?

Huh, that is funny. I get notified through my Android Phone (Samsung Galaxy Nexus)... about e-mail or Calendar events added with about 3-5 seconds after they get to my "inbox"

People dislike it when I ask them if they've seen the calendar event or e-mail sent by others. It annoys them I get my e-mail faster and more reliably than they do.

I also have my phone last up to 90 hours per charge, at least 72 hours normally. I use it for SMS and e-mail and Skype and phone calls. Though phone calls and Skype tend to eat more battery.

You know what else is funny? Android uses proprietary push technology, not IMAP push.

So..about that Kool-Aid ? What flavor is yours?
