    As a Google member, you can type in keyword commands such as “what time is it” to get live data results. These operate in a similar manner to syndicated Google gadgets, but will allow user preferences to be specified as a function of the query. This makes it easier for users to remember, and will also capture their attention; this is something developers should remember when submitting their Google gadget to the directory.
