BusyBlog bashes CalDAV...or somebody

The controversy about supposed shortcomings of CalDAV takes another twisty turn with this post from BusyBlog. Cmon Swampers...someone explain this to me. Is this read-only iPhone problem the fault of CalDAV, or Google, or Apple? Seems like using a solution like BusySync gets around the problem altogether. Does this suggest the need for a standard beyond CalDAV? Maybe it exists already, and I'm not paying enough attention?

Huh? not sure I understand the readonly nature that people are talking about here.

I've tried many Caldav-solutions the past weeks, from Apple's Calendar-Server to Davical and all calendars sync nicely, except on my iPod Touch :(

I'm using an Oracle calendar-solution at my work and nothing seems to sync it. Apple won't allow SyncML to interact and using Caldav was my last hope.

However, I just spotted a new solution from Synthesis, they've created their own calendar- and todo app for iPhone and iPod Touch. Bought it, installed it, set it up and it works like a breeze. Won't sync with iCal, but I'll handle that with some Caldav- and SyncMl tricks.
