    It's a shame the download link is broken though. Guess we'll have to wait til after the Stevenote for the file to be available.

    It is sort of pointless, but Im sure there are some people that can find a use for it. I have it on my computer but I dont think I will use it more then 5 times throughout my entire life :D. I want iSurf....

    Where is the jelly?

    What happened to the Gel looking - Aqua style backgrounds for the events? The colors looks flat.

    and you only get the "web view" if you publish to .Mac - "publishing" to a normal Apache web server running mod_dav (WebDAV) extensions just gets you .ics
    files:

    Oh, its very useful - I'll just have to write some code to turn the .ics files on my webserver into viewable HTML, and thats just to look at my calendars when I'm not at home on the Mac.

    As with any Calendering program

    You actually have to be busy or have a desire to be organized to use it.

    Those who think Calendars are useless may think differently once you have children, bills and a myriad of other things going on in your life.

    Just my $.02

    I'm just a high school student and I love this application. Finally, I can make sure if I am free at a certain time using my iPod (which I carry around anyway).

    Although, there do seem to be some bugs that still need to be ironed out and it could be a lot faster. Oh well, atleast I might finally get my life in order. :eek: :eek: :eek:

    Re: As with any Calendering program

    on my handspring visor, using DateBook+, there's a view that shows the whole year. it marks each day something is scheduled. on mine, through the end of september, i have fewer than 30 days NOT marked.

    i'm self-employed and couldn't manage my time w/o one.

    ...regarding iCal/iSync, i'll be impressed when i can hit the Sync button on the visor cradle and have all my info correctly d/loaded into the iApps...

    ...i've already gone through the headache of MANUALLY transferring all my Newton data into Palm Desktop...

    what are the odds...

    of me ever using an application that takes like three seconds when switching from week-view to month-view on a Ti 550?

    slim to none... :(

    Re: what are the odds...

    You've got a different problem, it takes me almost no time (under two seconds) to switch on my Pismo 400.

    Outside that, I have a great use for this calander, especially the web publishing. I too need some code to converst ics, but that will come. MY crap is so convuluted between work and home, I can really use it. My palm works great with entourage and of course Palm Desktop on the Mac. I finally got the guys at work to allow me to use Palm desktop on our crappy PCs. My belief is that iSync is going to save me some headaches and allow only two syncs a day, which is better than the three or four I have now, and that doesn't include a web calender.

    I will give Final Cut Pro two seconds to switch to "Edit To Tape" mode, but not a calender application to switch views. I don´t mean to be unreasonably demanding, but I almost go back to OS 9 every day because it is soooo much more snappy and "there" than OS X.

    10.2 helped a bit, but it is way far from good enough... And the sad fact that my little brothers PC runs on a 533 mhz system bus, while the coolest Mac is at 167 mhz gives me a bad stomach feeling... I love my Mac, but I need performance, not laggy iAppz...

    problem isnt with osx or with ical, and someone already told you that so quit your whining. switching modes or views on my g3 powerbook 333mhz is instant.

    Re: what are the odds...

    on my Ti 550 it takes 3 seconds as well to change views.

    It also changes the window size, very annoying!
