    In the WWDC keynote, Steve did a demo of calendaring sharing. How did you set this up? I can invite my wife to a meeting that I setup, but the meeting is on each others respective home calendars. I thought there was a way to set up the concept of a named shared calendar. For example, I thought that you could setup a shared calendar called something like "Kid's schedule" and on that calendar, it would have drop off times, pick up times, soccer schedule, etc without having to actually invite my wife. Any idea how to set this up?

    DUH -- nevermind, I just figured it out. It's all done via icloud.com, specifically in the calendar app.

    Ahh... interesting. Good stuff. I just setup this solution via Google Calendars since it wasn't possible to share in MobileMe.

    Yah we were using google calendars as well, but I like this solution better (now that it's available)! :)

    Do you know if this could be shared across platforms? That would be one hesitation I have regarding this.

    I *think* it's iOS specific. I don't have a Mac. I'd be curious if this would work on a Mac.

    This works the same on the Mac too!
