In Google Calendars, now, when you look under "Other Calendars," click "Add," then "Browse Interesting Calendars" (or use this link to the Calendar directory), you'll find calendars of sports leagues, everything from the National Football League to the Korean FA Cup. When you subscribe to your favorite team's calendar, you'll see every game listed, updated in real time with the score as the game progresses. You can also subscribe to a "Contacts' Birthdays and Events" calendar, which’ll add all of your contacts' birthdays to Google Calendar. Data is pulled from your Gmail contacts and your friends' Google profiles. Finally, two new Calendar Labs features: "Dim future repeating events" makes recurring meetings more transparent over time, helping more important meetings pop out, and "Add any gadget by URL" gives you the flexibility put any gadget you'd like in your calendar.
