Windows Tom Warren at The Verge details that, yes, we're getting a major update to the communication applications in Windows 8 tonight or tomorrow, and there's some definitively good stuff in there, such as much-needed performance improvements, lots of new functionality for the currently abysmal Mail application, and more. Sadly, the update does not include support for CalDAV and CardDAV, and it actually removes Google sync support for Calendar. Google is already moving to its Google Calendar API, though, so maybe Microsoft will just skip CalDAV altogether. Seems like a solid set of updates, to hit your Windows 8 machine any moment now.

What's the point?

What is the point of Microsoft's social apps? The Messenger app, for example, only lets you add two accounts, a restriction no other messaging client has. Since freeware messaging apps are readily downloadable (e.g. Pidgin), there seems no point in using it.
