Geek Chic: Google Calendar
Click to enlarge in another window
Google Calendar offers all these features in an ex-cellent, easy-to-understand, and well-designed interface. You have five views from which to choose: day, week, month, a specific number of days or a list of appointments. You enter a new appointment by clicking on the Create Event or Quick Add links, or by clicking directly on the day itself.
Clicking on an existing entry takes you to an edit page, where you can change the name, time, location and description of your event; start a newsgroup-like discussion; add a reminder (which can be a pop-up, or sent from your e-mail or mobile phone); and change the privacy level. The beta version we tested had some blips. For instance, it wasn't until I disabled pop-up blocking in Norton Internet Security that I was able to edit entries without running into problems.
The coolest thing about Google Calendar is the ability to share your calendar with friends or the public. You can also add as many other calendars as you want. Google's multitudes of fans are probably already working on a wide variety of snazzy calendars.
