How to sync more into Google Calendar – Facebook, Outlook, iCal

If you use your Google Calendar for your main calendar, or just your transport, here’s how you can get three of your most important feeds into the one whole, and never worry about sync issues again.  For me, syncing Microsoft Outlook with Google Calendar was for work, syncing Facebook events with Google Calendar for non-tech friends, and syncing iCal with Google Calendar for my laptop and soon to be iPhone (which will then replace Google Calendar as my main calendar by subscription).

All the processes are bi-lateral, so you can always say who dictates what.  It’s really the functionality of Google Calendars subscription service, and the publishing of public URLs from these calendars that makes it all run smoothy.
