Google Calendar flips the switch on CalDAV

I was pretty sure this was coming but had no idea when... and really didn't care THAT much. Nevertheless it is a pretty slick addition to Google's already powerful calendaring system.

At a high level, CalDAV is just an extension to WebDAV which is "is a set of extensions to the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) which allows users to collaboratively edit and manage files on remote World Wide Web servers."

CalDAV allows clients to access scheduling information on remote servers by extending WebDAV and using the iCalendar format for data.
