Reflector App Icon

Reflector App IconSome weeks ago I reported about my findings on running Reflector app on Windows 8 Pro. Reflector app doesn’t run perfectly on Windows 8. So do other AirPlay mirroring apps like AirParrot and AirServer.
Since last Friday I’m a happy and pride owner of a MacBook Pro 13″ (Mid 2012) with a Intel Core Duo i5 2,5GHz processor running on OS X 10.8.2 Mountain Lion. 🙂

Windows 8 logoYesterday I described how to set up syncing Gmail in Windows 8 and RT mail app because Google cancelled the support of Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync for new subscribers and for new devices on January 30, 2013 (for Windows Phones on July 31, 2013). Now you’ve got to use IMAP for emails, CalDAV for calendars and CardDav for contacts. Right now Microsoft does not support neither the pushing function of IMAP, nor CalDAV and CardDAV.

Now you’ve got to use IMAP for emails, CalDAV for calendars and CardDav for contacts.  Therefore, setting up Gmail with Windows 8 Mail App (or Windows RT Mail App) is not as comfortable as it was and, further more, a little bit tricky: You have to set it up correctly to get the sync working properly.
