Google Calendar event start time entry shortcut Internet
In Google Calendar, you can enter the event name and start time together in the one-click shortcut.

Start by clicking the calendar day or hour for a pop-up bubble. Type the start time (7p or 700p any place in the event name. It's even suggested by the example, 7pm Dinner at Pancho's.) Then click on Create Event" or press Enter. The start time will precede the event name. Note that 7p-8p won't convert.

This feature can't be used on an existing event -- when you edit an existing event, typing 7p in the subject line won't convert. You must uncheck All Day and choose the start time from the pulldown menu, or highlight the time box and enter at least 7p or 700p (or at least 7 for AM).

Mac hint?

I'm usually pretty accepting of even the most esoteric hint, but how is this even remotely related to a Mac?

Not only that but even the hint itself points out that this is documented behaviour

It only works if you use Safari
