Very recently I've been using the google calendar and I really like it. Not so much for the fact that it helps me keep track of what I'm doing (I don't need a calendar to track what I do), but it helps me see what other people with busy schedules are up to. For example: Laura. Before I could never keep track of where she was when. Now I just have to check the schedule online because she's shared her calendar with me. I've also got it set up for family birthday / anniversaries.
I think the killer feature of this tool is that it is great for collaboration. Since the work for events is usually managing it between different people, it doesn't make sense for n different people to keep n different copies of the same event. But that's not news to anyone.
My only grip (that's widely shared on the 'net) is that there doesn't seem to be an easy way to export the calendar from iCal to a format that a palm can use. I've found some hacky ways and some tools, but I don't know how well they work or if they'll mess up Laura's palm something awful. Anyone with a better solution (even if it's only a one way process from iCal to palm)?
Note: looking for a solutions for a WinXP box, hopefully free. So, iSync and the "The Missing Sync" are classed as runners up. ;-)Posted by jim at June 27, 2006 12:58 PM
