I love it, especially the ability to add remote calendars. And with every new Google release I am finding more and more stuff I want. Now I want a Google address book. :)

I think it's awesome. They did a great job keeping it simple yet very functional. All I want now is WebDAV support. ;)

All MOD downloads should be back now - Sorry for that and serious lack of support! - If anyone wants to take over or help with any of my MODs the offer would be apreciated as I have little time for phpBB Modding recently!

Again very sorry for not supporting these MODs recently.

Hmmm. I have gotten more and more suspicious of google after Gmail. They always seem to want your files, your life, you. I dont plan on using googles calender, since after all, they dont need to know my personal life. Why would google produce all this stuff that is free to use? They want to know more about you, for money making purposes. I would rather not let someone I dont know learn about my private life simply becuase its easy for me.

Wow, yes, your words remind me .Why Google offer so much free things and push them to the face of more and more people? and it will get more and more people's personal info ,that's the big treasure. it may make money from it someday.

Google Calendar now has a documented API. Expect a lot of cool applications and widgets to come out shortly.

Everyone, put off your tinfoil hats. They are disturbing my enjoyment.

How's is Google's implementation any more of an invasion of privacy than all the other web calendars (MSN/Hotmail's, Yahoo's, etc)?

It isn't...but what I can't figure out is why you would use anything other than paper for your calendar unless you carry a PDA.

This question based primarily on the amount of time per day I have access to a computer and/or the Internet, and my time there is probably above average.

My only concern would be that Google might lose focus on their search engine. If they keep trying to be so many things to so many people, they may forget that the reason they are famous is for the search engine, and they may slack off their search engine.

It's like Wayne Gretzky trying to do figure skating, curling, and driving a Zamboni in addition to hockey. :D
