I am currently running OS X Lion and have activted an iCloud account. I recently purchased an iPhone 4s and have had success syncing my contacts between my MacBook, iPhone and iCloud account. I have also had success syncing my Google Calendar delegates between my MacBook, iPhone and work Mac (running snow Leopard).

 

The rub is I can't get the calendars to show up in iCloud. I have looked through the limited settings options and can't find anything to help.

 

Is there anything I can do to get all my devices to show the same calendars?

 

Thanks in advance.

    While it is true that the individual machines can sync with Google, iCloud cannot directly. 

     

    The reality is that while iCloud may be an excellent system for linking Apple products the truth is that Google Apps are available on more platforms.  Just like Apple systems can deal with almost any file system, Apple's iCloud should be able to sync with Google calanders and address book.   Many companies and schools use Google services for shared calendars and resources.  It would sure make sense to provide that as an additional service as well.  It wouldn't be any harder than implementing the sync and delegation methods already implemented in the standalone apps on the platforms.
