Now it's possible to access your calendar in its entirety right from your phone. Just point your Web browser to and you'll see all your upcoming events, complete with dates, times, locations, and the like. You can even add new events using plain-English text (e.g., "Lunch with Tom 12 pm Friday").

An even better solution: GooSync, which synchronizes Google Calendar with your phone's own calendar applet. It doesn't work with all phones, but the basic service is free, so it's well worth checking out. What's your favorite Google Calendar tip?
