The Universal Calendar

One of the things that is a bit of a hassle is that you really would like one calendar to cover a number of your bases. You want to make sure that your calendar has your availability for work, and you can access it at home, or on your blackberry, or wherever.

And thankfully, I've finally got what I think might be a solution. With Google's mobile solution, you can sync your calendar with your BlackBerry. This is a good place to start.

One of the more complicated sides, then, is getting it synchronized with your iCal if you are a Mac user. I'm not synchronizing my BlackBerry with my Mac in a plugged in fashion -- but by using a tool like BusySync, I can sync it up with the Google calendar -- which will then sync with the BlackBerry.

Bingo, calendar unification has been achieved.

I'm still trying out BusySync -- it's not free, but if it works, I'll definitely go ahead and get it.

Have you looked at Plaxo? They offer a free calendar and contact sync program for the Mac...and Plaxo can then sync with Google, Yahoo, MSN, etc...keeping everything in sync.

I have used it and it works fairly well. If you are a Comcast customer you get a Premium membership to Plaxo for free...which gives you lots of tools for mobile syncing, de-duping, etc...
