Yet another reason to love Google (and we might as well learn to love our new masters): Google Calendar. I love how when I add a new item it is smart enough to figure out what I meant, not just what I typed. For example, I can click in the general direction of, say, Wednesday, and type "8:50 eye doctor appointment Onalaska", and what it does is adds an entry at 8:50 a.m. Wednesday titled "Eye doctor appointment Onalaska." It figures out that when I click on Wednesday and type 8:50, I probably am putting in a time, it is not precisely on the half-hour that Google works on so it will have to specify a different time, and that I probably meant 8:50 a.m., not 8:50 p.m. So smart.
