I just noticed that Google will drop the CalDAV and CardDAV APIs. Back in December I had been glad when I heard they would drop the ActiveSync protocol because I thought they wanted to promote open standards instead. I was wrong, it seems they just want to impose their useless Google Calendar API. Google services are now dead for me and I suggest you to do the same. It’s time to promote this awesome project called NOGAPPS which allows you to sever ties with Google even in your Android phone.
