Idea to Toss

So here's an idea to toss. Most of us are on Facebook and Orkut. I am quite sure that we would have not escaped google's net too, with gmail accounts.

How easy/difficult is it to pick up the birthday's of your friends in Orkut and Facebook and add it to your google calendar and make it send reminders a day before ? Since facebook provides a way to embed your orkut page, I think picking up the date of your friends birthday from facebook and adding it to google calender must not be difficult.

Won't this help people like me who keep forgetting birthday's of people they want to wish ?

PS: It could be possible that there is some kind of application that does this. If so, please post about it in comments.

    it seems orkut wont give us DOB and AGE as they've classified it as Personally Identifiable Information.
