Google Take a step back in time to use Google in your command line interface. GoogleCL "streamlines tasks such as posting to a Blogger blog, adding events to Calendar, or editing documents on Google Docs." Aside from Blogger, Calendar, and Docs, it also provides CLI access to your Google Contacts, Picasa, and YouTube. Whether you're in it for the sheer joy of feeling like it's 1984 again or for the ease of doing a load of tasks in a batch or even incorporating it into your scripts for uber functionality and friendliness with your other apps, this nifty little program is for you. The app is native to Linux, but Mac and Windows users can use it with a bit of fenangling-- all you'll need is Python 2.5 or 2.6, and Windows users will need to add Cygwin to the mix.

There is many people that is still using the console as the main UI. In my case the only applications I use is a web browser, a pdf viewer and xterms glued together with dwm.

It's about what the vast majority uses. I still use a 4 kg bakelite copper phone, but that doesn't make I very 2010.

(I too use a CLI for the majority of my work)
