I share your preference for actual, real-world experiences...
I exported all of my iCal and Address Book data out to Gmail. I was already using Gmail, Yahoo Mail and Comcast Mail, so I configured the HTC Mail client on my Android phone to use those services. I found that HTC's 'Contacts' and 'Calendar' apps pulled down everything automagically with no configuration needed.

Syncing happens OTA with no need to connect it to my Mac at all. If I feel the need to update a contact on my Mac, I just log into Gmail on it and the changes come down instantly.

I actually have Google's iCal sync program installed, so I use iCal as I always did.

The notion of having to do a cabled sync is somewhat outdated these days. I haven't bothered with 'The Missing Sync for Android' as I'm not really sure there would be a point.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
