It's that time of year again; Google's leading its ostensibly lonely and unloved services out to pasture. This time Google Sync, and some more obscure calender options are headed for that big cloud storage unit in the sky.
The Apple internet revolution we needed didn't happen. We wanted a unified service that would let us store all our media and personal information in the ether. But we didn't get it. So forget the fruit stand; we're going rogue.
Apple hasn't added push for Gmail to its Mail app on the iPhone, but Google has worked around that via Google Sync. All you have to do is set it up as a Microsoft Exchange account. At last!
If you are a Google Apps junkie like I am, chances are that your iPhone (or WinMo) experience has been lacking. Luckily, Google has released Sync support to instantly coordinate your Google Calendar and Contacts.
