Google's CL2: calendar app, with screenshots

James Duncan has a mirror of the leaked screenshots of Google's CL2. (They were originally leaked by TechCrunch.)

Looks really nice, and I can't wait to get an invite - but apparently, at the moment there are only 200 users with no invite system whatsoever. :-( Two of the nicer looking screenshots:

I'm really looking forward to trying out this automatic parsing of sentences in the above screenshot - if that is what it does. From what I can tell, you would type in " Dinner with Michael at 7pm tomorrow" and Google would give you an appointment titled "Dinner with Michael" at 7pm on the next day. (Just thought that needed some explanation :P) This would be a really great feature to see implemented into any other calendar app, but I still like the idea of having calendar integrated into Gmail. Synchronization with PDAs and smartphones would be cool too (or even iPods?). At the moment, I'm using Mozilla Sunbird.

Adding and integrating a calendar into gmail would really help people move away from desktop applications like Outlook. That's a direct threat to Microsoft.
