Google Reader has had “trends” for a while now, it really lets you see what you read, when you read it, etc.
Why doesn’t Gmail have a trends page? Why doesn’t it show you who you get email from, who you email the most, time of day etc. Something like Xobni. I know there is a Python app that a dev at Google made, but why can’t Google just add this to Gmail? They already have the information. Maybe it would be nice as a labs feature.
There are so many things out there like this. Where the metadata is available, but not available to you. From your TV, to you car, to your computer, apps, even your body. You can’t automatically get the times you went to sleep, bathroom, eat, etc from yourself, but it would be nice. Build the ultimate Data Warehouse.
I just wish that apps that had the data would let you see it, use it, and improve your productivity. Someday.
