The whole syncing with Outlook has me so upset. The problem is.. I think even if they do fix the Outlook 2013 issue... Google is saying that they are going to be changing some things.. and one is syncing. It sounds like to me that soon you wont even be able to sync with EAS unless you pay for Google Apps for Business. And, I believe I read in another article that POP accounts will require a third party app.
I am a major non-Apple person.. but I think Google and Samsung has just made my decision.. looks like I will be moving to Apple's iPhone.
Here is one of the articles I read: http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9234848/Microsoft_plugs_Outlook.com_knocks_Google_after_Sync_death_notice
