I use +Nozbe for managing my to do list. I'm looking to create a snippet in TextExpander to use each day when adding new tasks. 

I would like to be able to bring up a calendar picker to select the date and prompt me to enter the time.

It would work like this:
-Launch Nozbe
-Create new task
-Enter TextExpander snippet
-Snippet gets expanded
-Get current date (or prompt to select date)
-Prompt to select time

This is the format I need to enter into Nozbe.

Some task #August 5 11:00pm

Right now, I can get it to populate the format I would use each time, but obviously I then have to go manually edit the fields. 

Any ideas on accomplishing this?

Great spot from +Ronnie Bincer on a new Google share button that works across multiple Google properties! 
Share Button added to various Google Online Properties
Just noticed that I have a new share button near my profile pic when on Google+, Google Calendar, & Gmail. Pressing it opens up a Google+ post dialog box from which I can create a post, aka Share Something.

What is currently missing is that same new share button when on YouTube. Come on YouTube aren't you part of the family?

Maybe it will show up there soon. I tested this on a couple different browsers and know that it is not Google Chrome specific, but more tied to the Google Online Properties mentioned and shown below.

I kinda half expected it to be part of any webpage I visited while signed into Google stuff and using Chrome, and then if I pressed the share button it would load that URL into the post, but alas, it doesn't work that way... Yet.

Any more proof needed that Google+ is here to stay?
