Google Calendar now supports Apple iCalIn a blog post by Engineering Director David Besbris Google announced its support for the CalDAV protocol.

This means that you can now use iCal with Google Calendar, allowing you to work offline, sync almost instantly, respond to invitations from others and see the free/busy data of your friends and coworkers.

We launched CalDAV support to our developers last July for feedback, and since that time a few of us whipped up a nifty setup program for iCal. This tool makes it a breeze to get iCal working with your Google account. We've released this as open source and the program is available for download at our Google Code site.

    How nice of you to create this tool. I have both calendars, how nice to be able to use them together.
