    I have seen the calendar icon in peoples screen shots of the Cal, and even through the video that plays on the wall at the apple stores, but i cant seem to figure out how to make it happen?

    Every time i set up a new task, or apt in my Cal, it notifies me via the Blue box alert, but I cant seem to figure out how to make the icon on the home page show the # 1,2, 3 notifications, etc..

    Anyone help me out with this??

    I think the # icon on the calendar is for event invitations (mobileme and exchange)

    This value is for events you have been invited to but have not yet responded

    ie, If I sent you an invite now, you would have a badge icon with a '1' on it until you responded to my invitation, at which point the badge would not have a number on it

    ahhh makes sense now :) Does anyone have any recommendations on a really good "to do" app? Possibly with PUSH enabled?

    I use this one and find it very good (after trying out quite a few)

    They are working on an update which will give push notifications

    OmniFocus is also very good, alot more too it, I found it a bit overkill for what i need
