I've been using googlecl successfully to add events to my calendar. Things like:

google calendar add "call Paul tomorrow at 8:30am"  

work great, and add the appropriate event t the right time. But no reminder is added for the event.
I tried:

google calendar add "call Paul tomorrow at 8:30am reminder 10 minutes"

and other combinations. It just ends up adding the "reminder" instruction to the event description.

What's the syntax I should use to add a, let's say, 10 minutes pop-up reminder?

According to the comments section on this page, there isn't a way to do it.

I see one comment asking the question - I don't see a negative answer – Traveling Tech Guy Dec 27 '10 at 19:41
And I surmised from the lack of information on the page, along with that comment, that it is not possible. – user3463 Dec 27 '10 at 19:45
