Google Calendar gets Reminders!

Google Reminder

We normally use our Calendar for scheduling meetings at work, remembering dates with friends, and keeping track of all our other commitments. But often our to-do list is elsewhere, separate from the Calendar that organizes our day, and we end up overcommitted or miss something important because we forgot to check our list. Gmail also has had a “to-do” feature for the longest time, but it was pretty useless, as it was a simple standalone, one-off feature that probably graduated from Labs at one point. It was never integrated, and almost everyone complained about it. Luckily Google has listned and is fixing that today.

Google is rolling out the ability to add reminders in Google Calendar for iOS and Android (web is coming soon).

Here’s what the team had to say about the update:

You might already create calendar entries to remind you to call the doctor or pick up groceries on the way home. But while those entries come and go, Reminders stick with you over time so you can track them until they are actually done. If a Reminder isn’t completed, it will appear at the top of your Calendar the next day. And the next. When you do finally call the doctor or pick up those necessities, just swipe the Reminder away … and you’re onto the next to-do.

You can also create a Reminder from Google Inbox, Google Keep and Google Now on your Android device. So basically, you can say “Remind me to take out the trash today at 1pm” and it’ll add it up on your calendar just like that.

Reminders will be rolling out this week with the latest versions of Calendar on Google Play and the App Store.

Re-Architect

This methodology requires the most effort to implement but it results in the most optimised recurring cost and will provide the best scalability for apps. This involves re-adapting the code of applications and the heavy use of SAAS solutions in order to replace existing hosted applications.

Re-Platform

This method utilizes the power of  PAAS services, like transferring a database to an as-a-service model,  the use of containers for some apps or the use of network/security functions as a service. Greater scalability and lower cost of operation is achieved.

Re-Host (Lift & Shift)

the migration of workloads from  to the cloud without changing the architecture. Machines get to keep their  OS and apps. This is the quickest and easy way to migrate, but since its  utilising IAAS, its is also the most expensive on the long term.
