Google’s New Calendar Feature Lets You Schedule Events Directly From The Search Page

Google calendar in search It appears Google had added another new calendar feature via its knowledge graph box. By searching "schedule appointment" or "add event" while logged into your Google account, Google will deliver a dynamic knowledge graph box that lets you automatically add an event to your Google calendar without leaving the search page. Clicking the "Create event" link automatically adds the event to your calendar without opening the calendar. Once the event has been added, the "Create event" link switches to "Edit event" which opens the user's calendar in a new tab so that event details and times [...]

Google Calendar Launches Public Calendar Directory

Philipp Lenssen reports that Google Calendar has added a gallery of public calendars that users can subscribe to. The directory is cataloged by Top Picks, TV shows, Events, Sports, Entertainment, Miscellaneous, Holidays and By Google.

After you click on the calendar, it will pop open a preview of the calendar, you can then choose if you would like to subscribe to that calendar or not. There are more details on the gallery over here, plus if you want to make your calendar public, you can learn how over [...]

Google Calendar Goes Mobile

Google has just launched a mobile version of Google Calendar, which is supposed to load for those visiting the Google Calendar site with a mobile phone. Google describes it more in a blog post today. It appears to work on a range of phones, including Windows Mobile. Via Search Engine Journal, Google Blogoscoped has posted some screenshots of the service in action.

Gmail is also available for mobile. Google Cale [...]

Google Security: Google Mac Blog Hacked & Google Calendar Users Not Being Safe

The Google Mac Blog was hacked this weekend, at least the second time an official Google blog has been hacked. It was restored fairly quickly. In somewhat related news, Chris Pirillo noticed Google Calendar users storing their private passwords in their public calendars. I noticed that the Google Mac Blog was hacked when I saw a post in my RSS feed that read; Yo! Yo! This is crazy.. I tried to register this and I could! :) - Vishal Philipp Lenssen has a screen capture of the hack. Back in October, the main Google blog was hacked just after Google had posted a notice discussing how serio [...]

Google Calendar Set To Pass Yahoo Calendar

Hitwise reports that Google Calendar has increased its market share by 333% between June 2006 and December 2006. Google Calendar recently passed by MSN Calendar's share and is quickly encroaching on Yahoo Calendar's share. LeeAnn from Hitwise shows that "Yahoo Calendar received 48% of its upstream from Yahoo Mail or Yahoo Address Book" but Google only received "19% of its upstream traffic from Gmail for the week ending 12/30/06, and 42% from Google search." This leaves me to believe that if Google can improve the promotion of Google Calendar via Gmail, it too can surpass Yahoo Calendar's ma [...]
