calendar, Google, outlook, OUTLOOK GOOGLE CALENDAR SYNC, sync

I keep all my devices in sync with this excellent opensource tool called OUTLOOK GOOGLE CALENDAR SYNC

Outlook <-> Google Calendar Sync for the Win!

I bloody love this little utility. It smoothly keeps my calendar and contacts fully synchonised between my mobile phone, tablets, work desktop, work phone. It runs on my work PC and my home PC, both locations that I use two different installs of OUTLOOK (one business and one personal) and it keeps them both in synch while also updating my google calendar so my phone is always able to show me all meetings and calendar entries in realtime.
