Draining the online calendar swamp

Hawk Wings:
The latest TWiT “Inside the Net” podcast deals with online calendar services and the quest for inter-operability.

Guest presenter Scott Mace (Calender Swamp ) talks up Apple’s iCal and Google Calendar which get good marks for working well together (although not always).

Google Calendar gets Scott’s vote for the most complete solution although his wife (”an Apple bigot”) thinks that iCal is the bees’ knees and she does things with colour in iCal that other calendar apps can only dream about.

The open source calendar app Chandler gets a good rap too, although it is still in beta and has been for a long time.
Chandler is a piece of garbage, sorry. And I guess these guys have never seen Outlook 2007, which is features the same colored appointment balloons as iCal and interoperable with Internet calendarings standards.
