Google on Friday announced it’s shuttering some of its lesser used services, including some that are designed to help users sync up their info. Of note, Google Sync is being being sent off to retirement—the service allows Microsoft Exchange’s ActiveSync protocol to access Gmail, Calendar and contacts. Existing connections will function as normal, but any new accounts created beyond Jan. 30 won’t work. Google explained on its blog that the launch of CardDAV was design to mitigate Google Sync’ demise. The company outlines other services being shut down, including reservable times in Calendar, Google Calendar Sync, Google Sync for Nokia S60, and Punchd.
