    Seems to be working fine for me. Sorry. But you can check out the article from the ZDNet site.

    Updates are now available and Mail and Calendar offer a much better experience especially if your are connected to an Exchange or Office365 Business backend....very cool

    I'm anxious to see how it affects people's Google syncing. Based on this site:

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US//windows-8/use-google-windows-8-rt

    If you connected your Google account before January 31 you don't have to worry.

    Can anyone confirm or contradict this claim? I'm hoping to get some answers before I go ahead and do the update.

    Thanks!

    Nope there are Google issues. It is telling me I have to connected to Google in a different way now.

    "Google no longer supports active sync. Reconnect to get your email contacts using a different method."

    Score, the calendar holds the week view instead of going back to the month view after closing.

    Can we please get "add to calendar" function!?!?!
