I'm wondering if anyone here has a definitive answer to this question? I like millions of others use Google for email though I use Apple.mail as the client for email and iCal as the client for Google calendar events. Question - given what I have just said, what is the point of iCloud for iCal? Short of Google crashing I can view my calendar events on any of my Mac devices or Windows for that matter as well as Google on the web. What can iCloud offer in this situation?
