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).

Tables have turned

It is rather odd to see how the tables have turned. Google is really calling the shots here...

As long as is a move towards open standards this is a good thing I guess.

By caving on each issue? First the Google Maps, now EAS deadline.

Are you kidding? Google totally won this. They exchange (no pun intended) keeping EAS online a few months longer for Microsoft building in the Google-championed standards into its OS... Microsoft seems to have been the one to "cave" here.
