    I use iCal as my primary calendar. I don't use Google cal. I'd like to be able to create an event in iCal and have it synced up to Gcal for viewing purposes and be able to event an event or add an event in GCal. Basically Bi-directional syncing. Is there an easy way to do this, cheap?

    I've tried cal dev, but the problem is that it's not bi-directional and I have multple calendars (work, home, school, freelance, fun etc...) and would like all calendars synced to Gcal

    All of this is possible using gcal's caldav feature. You'll have to follow the instructions, but it does work, it's bidirectional.

    One note, you have to be running leopard. I believe that ical in Tiger does not support this feature.

    I believe I have this all working right now. I'm actually syncing my Outlook/Exchange calendar to gCal and then gCal to iCal. I used this link here which has a setup program that basically did the iCal<->gCal setup. (this is not ideal for me btw. I would prefer to simply get iCal syncing with Exchange but haven't found a reliable way to do that (and is better than what I have) despite 10's of hours of googling..)
