    Lots of chatter going on about this on the web. Should be interesting, assuming it's true. :D

    Well, the specifics are obviously still unknown, but people are expecting an online calendaring service, that would allow sharing and possible synchronization with desktop apps like Outlook, iCal etc.

    I'll remain skeptical of its usefulness, taking into considering how some of its new stuff (Google Base, Google Reader) isn't really that great. But it is Google, I hope they can bring back their "golden touch".

    Yeah, good point. And after I posted I was thinking I wouldn't make the change tomorrow, but a good thing to check out. I'd also be curious as to the security of it all, and if it played nicely with desktop-based apps as Kunal mentioned.

    Well, that's pretty much a confirmation then ;) It's funny how people go all crazy whenever Google does anything.
