CL2: Arghhh, Another Google Product I am gonna HAVE to use!!! March 7, 2006Posted by Zack W. Handley in Best Stuff, Google, Microsoft, Search, VeryUseful, Web 2.0.
CL2 is closely, very closely, integrated with Gmail. It includes
now-standard web 2.0 features – Ajax, subscription feeds for
integration with iCal and other desktop calendars, event creation,
search, sharing, notifications (including SMS) and more.
It’s also clear from the event creation functionality that Google is
is going to attempt to aggregate events like eventful and zvents do
now. If they combine their event creation feature with a web crawl and
parsing of event data (exactly what zvents does), they will be able to
create a very large events database. From the CL2 Trusted Tester
More Importantly, why is MSFT & Yahoo not??? Sure there are many start ups out there like Airset, zvents, 30 Boxes many many more….but why use a calendaring apps without email integration? Makes No Sense.
This will be THE tool that gets everyone in my family on Gmail…buh bye Outlook and Hotmail, & Yahoo. The functionality combined with Gmail integration is too much to resist.
