Google calendar is finally here!! I was waiting for this for so many months now.. I use the Yahoo calendar and wanted one place that I could call my base for my time management and knew Google would do a good job when it does come out.
Just started using it – and it seems to be slick! It perhaps uses the Ajax technology. The feature that I really like is the ability to integrate various public calendars! So if you have made your calendar public – it can be incorporated in mine. What this ALSO means is that if an organization or person has created a calendar for some events – it can be brought in too – for example I brought in schedule for the Cricket matches that India is playing as well as Indian Holidays! This way, the Google calendar not only goes against the other calendars from Yahoo and hotmail but also is a head on competition to Upcoming calendar.. which is very interesting!
Meanwhile this is what Google says about its own calendar!
