Wish: THE calendar/diary for me

Google announced Google Calendar. Yet another way of organizing your time...

I have tried *many* methods to organize my time. I started with my memory. Than I decided that I'd like to use my memory for other stuff and I bought paper diary. It was good, but I wanted to try some electronic device to manage my diary and time plan. I have tried Palms, I have tried computer programs, web calendars, now I even have iCal on my Mac and calendar in my mobile phone. And now Google produced its Calendar. And I'm back and still use my paper diary and it works great.

Sure, I can't share my calendar data (of course I can - it is as simple as creating photo copy or scan of the page from diary). My diary doesn't have alarm, so I still have to use my alarm-clock or mobile phone ( doesn't have e-mail too ;-). But I like it, my diary is simple, works and fulfills my needs.

There can be tools and methods that are more efficient than my current approach, so I keep on trying new stuff. But I always have to delete action item from my paper diary after I try it.

I think that calendar application can only be useful if connected with mail client. Inviting someone else to some meeting should be done via mail. Rejecting or accepting the meeting should also be done via mail. Otherwise you'll have another "activity" once you reach the network (read calendar events/...). I already do read my mail, I already do read several websites. Why yet another similar activity?

Who will be the first to get it and get it right?
