    So, I set iCal to start when I login to my iBook, but it still shows the 17th!

    What gives?? ;)

    He said he opened it, so that the correct date would be shown.

    To the original poster, is the little triangle below the app show that it is still running? It should always update when ical is active. If you quit, it'll go back to July 17.

    ...july 17?

    EVERY MONTH IS JULY! WOOO!

    Unless...

    Every month really is July.
    That would rock.
    July would be cold but the pool would still be open because it's july!

    MAN! I wanna try the whole polar bear club thing.
    Sounds fun! :)

    Sorry people, especially katie ta achoo. I stand corrected. Serves me right for not having my icons magnify and refusing to admit I'm old and get specs. My bad. A big sorry.

    Yes, my iCal icon is just like everyone else's. :)

    Anyone know what the significance is of July 17th? Why'd Apple choose that particular date for the iCal icon?

    iCal debuted on July 17, 2002 at the MacWorld Expo in New York.

    Did Apple leave the bug intentionally or they don't sweat over little things like iCal static date?

    It's the icon for the app. It's not a "bug"
    It'd be a bug if you had it open and it said a different date.

    Excellent point.

    Would it be possible to have a dynamic icon? Seems like the icon would be more "Apple" if it kept pace with the date even when the app wasn't running.

    ^Some people are slow...give them time. With time, great things may occur. But probably not... :p

    there is a shareware...

    ...that makes the dock icons dynamic. Look for it under apple's shareware database.
