image One of the most useful, to me anyway, apps from Google is the Google Calendar system.  In conjunction with Plaxo’s ability to synchronize my devices and Google’s ability to keep a non desktop specific collaborative calendar is what keeps me on track with what’s going on in my world.

Google has today made it even more useful by launching a gadget for their desktop bar.

Pretty much all the functionality for the actual calendaring software is duplicated here, and you get the added benefit of getting an alert from the system without keeping the window open all the time.

Pretty great, and enough to get me to switch from Microsoft’s desktop gadget system to Google’s.  Just click on over here and give it a go.
