Calgoo iCal synching

Calgoo on Wednesday announced its cross-platform calendar sharing programs are now compatible with Apple's iCal application. The announcement affects Calgoo Hub, Calgoo Connect, and Calgoo Calendar, and will allow users to synchronize their iCal calendars with users of Google, Outlook, Sunbird, as well as a host of other cross-platform mail clients. Calgoo Connect and Calendar Pro annual subscriptions start at $30, with several licensing options available.

Calgoo states that the service uses WebDAV to synchronize iCal with Calgoo Connect and Hub, as well as enabling support for Outlook 2007 and Sunbird. The company also uses a proprietary binary protocol. Both methods lack encryption, but are reportedly not easy to compromise.

    The rental fee

    The fee is a bit steep, considering that you have to keep paying it again over and over every year. We had a subscription society once before, one in which few people owned anything, they only paid endlessly for access. It was called feudalism. We should all be concerned by the growing portion of our budgets that constitute fees rather than purchases.
