"...synchronization is built in to the new format so if you're content with having iCal sync with MobileMe, then the new MobileMe calendars are a good choice."

I'm a little confused about this. Does that mean that with the new mobile me I could use Spanning Sync to sync changes in my google calendars back to my Mac (e.g. to be seen in iCal), and the new mobileme will in turn sync those same changes from my Mac (iCal) to my mobileme calendars?

If so, I don't understand how this is different from the arrangement under the current "old" mobileme.

Gurp-- No, you can't sync the calendars on your Mac that you sync with Google with MobileMe because the new MobileMe calendars are CalDAV calendars and Apple's sync system won't sync to CalDAV calendars.
