Well, I made the switch. I've been talking about it for awhile but was nervous about losing things during the transition.
I planned as best as I could, created a checklist and just DID IT!
So far, I am absolutely loving it. There was one little glitch when I discovered that my iPod does not automatically sync with Gcal the way it does with Outlook. A bummer, since one of the main reasons I bought the iPod was to use as a PDA.
That was solved with a lovely application called NuevaSync, which I've now successfully used to get my Gcal info onto my iPod.
I'm going to write several more posts about how I'm using Gmail and Gcal, and how they are making my life both easier and more fun!! Check the Productivity index for new posts over the next while.
This is a very interesting idea. I love how you think outside of the box! Going to explore this option – LOVE options!

Hmmm, I just decided to join the century and use gmail and the google calendar. When I sync with my Outlook cal, it doubles all my entries. I tried to uninstall, reinstall and start over but that didn’t resolve the challenge. Anyone have a clue? I like what I see with gmail/cal. Thanks, Linda.

Yikes Kimberley, that’s too bad! I would check out Gmail’s forum and other Help/Support features. There are plenty of techie-type Gmail evangelists who seem eager to help.
