Google screwing the world come Jan 31, 2013

Google has announced that it won’t be supporting exchange sync after Jan 31, 2013 for anyone that doesn’t pay them $50 p/year to be a google apps client. How will this effect eM Client’s ability to continue to sync with GMail accounts (mail, calendar, contacts) going forward??

eM Client is synchronizing with Google via IMAP, SMTP and GData protocol so it will not be effected.

Gdata is dated. What will guarantee eM Client will continue to sync my calendar & contacts?

GData will not stop working in the near future so you do not have to worry about Google synchronization.
