Microsoft "surprised" by Google ditching Exchange, suggests Outlook.com

0. phoneArena 17 Dec 2012, 19:38 posted on

Last week, Google announced that it was going to drop support of Microsoft's Exchange ActiveSync through Google Sync for new free users. The option will continue for those who already have Google Sync set up, and it will continue as an option for paid Google Apps users, who are more likely enterprise users, and more likely to need Exchange support. Google is moving away from Microsoft's proprietary system in favor of open standards like IMAP, CalDAV, and CardDAV. All of that sounds like a very Googley way to do things, but somehow Microsoft was still "surprised" by the move, and has no suggestions for users other than to switch to Outlook.com for their e-mail...

It's you who are annoying, people join this forum to discuss techonology and not members' personal lives.

I have plenty of time and that's none of your business, have a life yourself.

Discuss tech? Read some of what you've posted! Sounds full of anger and joy over this PA news. Too personal for me. Simply Annoying.

What's anger? I say MS is monopoly is anger and you say the opposite is reason?

if you are annoyed then just ignore, I'm suspicious that you are a MS paid blogger and try to suppress anti-MS opinions and you may appear under various identities.

And yes google is as evil or worse than MS. You can research some of the troubles google is in and those who are angered by their behavior. I don't hate Android, I don't appreciate who owns it. And MS and Apples closed system has allowed you to have many of the awesome tech you love today. Otherwise you'd have chaos in the tech world. Rampant viruses, no innovation, laziness, cheap ass products, eventually that open system will burst like a bubble. Those Android OEMs will eventually drain every idea out. What more can they do after 1080p screens, quad cores, they will exhaust everything in a short period of time. Only Apple, RIM, MS will survive the tech bubble. But you believe what you believe and that's fine with me.

I working in tech for a long time, and I know how bad duopoly of MS and Intel is to technology. People have to pay lots of money for low quality PCs while the industry is in stagnation.

Android is only 5 years old and look what change it has brought. MS and Intel now is under severe pressure to change and consumers are better off.

And Google is a fresh air, they preach open systems and so far I'm very impressed, maybe later they'll change IDK, but so far so good.

Well, I was surprised that WP 7.5 doesn't support VPN.
Looks like Google made it even for me :P
