Google Incorporates better Email integration with Calendar

Google has added the ability to click on a date/time in an email and it will show you what other events you have that day and you can then click the Add to Calendar button to have it put in your calendar with a link to the email.  I've been waiting for something like this feature for awhile, so I know it's fairly new.  In the past if there was  date and time in an email, you could set an appointment by clicking on More, but it rarely imported the date or time - so it was a pain to re-type in everything.
This new feature worked the first time I tried it :-)

It's nice to see Google not rest on it's laurel's and keep adding useful features.

Here is what it looks like in the email when you click on an date/time:

In the calendar item, under which calendar you are inputting it into, it now shows Source.  You click on source and it will bring up the feature.
