To-do List in Google Calendar

It seems that I am find­ing Google Cal­en­dar (cur­rently being referred to as gCal by technopiles) an alter­na­tive to Out­look lately. Even though I wish that Google would fin­ish up imple­ment­ing some kind of sync­ing between gCal and Out­look already. But luck­ily, there’s a “hack” that helps out in that side of things. I guess its enough to hold me down for a bit till some­thing from Google comes about.

Any­ways, one of the other things that I was hop­ing gCal to have was a sim­ple to-do list(s), aka. Tasks for those Outlook-oriented peo­ple. As I was Blingo-ing for an inte­gra­tion of some kind of to-do list with gCal, this arti­cle was on top of the list by Matias Pelenur. It does the job using JS, GM and Fire­Fox. Although at the moment, it only saves your to-do list per GM install; locally that is, per com­puter. But there are a cou­ple of workarounds that can be done to make it store to ser­vices such as Ama­zon S3, gCal itself, etc. as noted by Matias.

Sup­pos­edly, Google men­tioned the avail­abil­ity of an “Account Authen­ti­ca­tion Proxy for Web Appli­ca­tions” fea­ture that will be inter­grated with their gCal API in late April… this past April in fact. I guess we’ll just have to wait for an update on Matias about that, or from Google regard­ing their own home-blended to-do list inte­gra­tion with gCal.
