Google now offers a calendar service, Google Calendar, which can be accessed using http://www.google.com/calendar or calendar.google.com. You can schedule events on a calendar, mark them as public, and then have Google Calendar notify guests of the events.
Some may use this service as an alternative to Microsoft Outlook's calendaring feature. It certainly would make sharing a calendar easier, if you need to share a calendar with others outside your office or with non-Outlook users.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Google has also recently negotiated a deal with Dell where Google will pay Dell up to a billion dollars to preinstall Google Desktop on Dell PCs.
