    Thoughts on this:

    iCal Web Calendar Server


    Now if this software was free and was intended as a pet project for fun or something I could see a tad bit of lenience but as it stands. Someone needs to inform Apple.

    PS- Ugggh. Looks like Windows 3.11 or DOS graphics for the calendar. Fugly if you ask me.

    I'm no lawyer but that looks pretty blatant to me.

    $395.00!!! Sweet Zombie Jesus! That's awfully expensive for an ugly app from a company that might go out of business in the coming days ^_^

    Did they even bother to google "ical"? They would have known instantly that it's a no go. I ended up with 870,000 hits, almost all of 'em related in some way to Apple's app.

    Nice find sillicon addict. Thanks for the braking news ^_^ It's welcomed in such a long no-cool-apple-updates-time.

    Ummmm... Did anyone notice when this software was made? Last updated in April of 2000. I think Apple may be the one violating a copyright. Though perhaps their lawyers have already been in touch....

    Looks like Apple owns it.
