Today I’m a google nerd. I spent a lot of time adding Google Labs components to Gmail.
First up, the tasks application. It’s simply a quick way to make a to-do list with checkboxes, the ability to move tasks up and down the list, view/hide finished tasks. The surprise was the ability to pop-out the list into a separate window. Easy and clean!
Second, the Google Docs app. It’s a list of your most recently used Google Documents in an easy accessible box on the left hand margin in Gmail. No need to take the extra step of going to the actual Google Docs page.
Last, I enabled Gears with WordPress so I can use it if I happen to be offline.
