My wife and I are Gmail users and recently we both signed up for Google Calender. I’ve actually had it since the beta started a while ago but I never really used it because no one else was using it. I use Outlook at home and my Treo of course is with me but I also use Plaxo which syncs all my Outlook calendar stuff and my contacts to the web so I’m never without them no matter where I am.
I actually saw why people like it so much when I went to a conference in Orlando FL. At the conference there were a bunch of meetings going on with different companies that were giving people information on how to upgrade their software. When I went to see if there were any openings, I saw that they were all using Google Calendar to manage all the appointments. I thought that this was a really cool way to use technology and share information with your friends, especially those that don’t use MySpacve or Evite a lot. I’ll probably end up roping a lot of my in-laws and other family into using Google Calendar so they know when I’m around and when I’m not. Now I’m just waiting for a way to sync it with my current Outlook crap so I don’t have to do double entries into both my Treo and my Google Calendar. Come on Google hurry up, I’m dying over here!
