Is anyone else using it?

I've started playing tonight. I've registered my family members with 
Google then shared our calendars read-only with each other. We've all 
got a colour-coded calendar that shows what the whole family are doing 
but we can only write entries to our own calendar. You can have multiple 
calendars and share any you want to, to named users or globally, and 
subscribe to them from any iCalendar client like Mozilla Sunbird or iCal 
(and there's one coming in Windows Vista.)

To cut a long story short, it's Apple iCal on the web. The only weakness 
seems to be PDA/phone synching but I guess the simple answer is to have 
a PDA that is always on The Net. The Nokia 770 is looking very 
attractive again.

It isn't fully integrated into the Google Desktop yet (see 'Personalised 
Home' and 'Sign In' at the TRH corner of the search engine page) but it 
can only be a matter of time. I just wish we had some idea of what the 
bills will be for our web-service once Google ownz us and can threaten 
to cut off our data supply. I can't see much point writing software that 
isn't a web service.
