Google Licenses ActiveSync from Microsoft

In a press release that came out yesterday, Microsoft announced the Google has licensed ActiveSync for their Google Sync offering.

This is indeed good news. With the Apple iPhone using ActiveSync, as well as third party solutions that provide ActiveSync access for Blackberry devices, more companies are realizing that ActiveSync is a viable solution for getting access to Exchange based content. And, since ActiveSync is much more efficient than, say, Blackberry Enterprise Server, enterprises are more likely to use these devices.

Way to go, Google!

Even Lotus has licensed ActiveSync.

Now if Apple could only get their iPhone to support syncing tasks and notes, and also give us copy & paste in email, life would be good.
