IMHO the greatest productivity improvement in my life in recent times has been the release of Google Calendar Sync. This has finally allowed me to combine multiple calendars & get a consolidated view of my life.
Microsoft Outlook remains my favourite email client. I’ve tried many of the others, Eudora, Thunderbird, Notes, Entourage, Novell, some others I cannot even remember. But the one thing they do not offer is good calendar management. And, up until now, Outlook only offered this when used in combination with Exchange.
But now, using Google Calendar together with Outlook I am happy and can work out what is going on in my diary. This is a great innovation!
