TechTree Blog: Update — Google Will Remind You Of Birthdays, Too

As a follow-up to the recent announcement of Google's plan to integrate life and search, we now have this: Google+ users will soon see birthday reminders on search result pages. This comes as Google+ is being pushed to businesses via Google Apps. Basically, this will add features that Apps users can take advantage of — notably, video integration and restricted sharing.

It's not necessarily weird to see your friends' and colleagues' birthdays on a Google search page. But it'll make inroads into your head. There are hundreds of mobile apps, desktop apps, websites, e-mail reminders, and calendars that can remind you about birthdays (and there's Facebook, of course).
