Tags: Apple macOS Google CardDAV Address Book

For a long time (since I ended my subscription) I’ve been using Google/GMail as the main repository for address book data. It worked quite well for some months, but the last 3-4 months I’ve been having quite a few issues. First I tested Cobook (an app in Mac App Store), it fetches pictures etc. from Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and so on. Bad idea, because it pulled the birthdays of all my Facebook contacts.
