When will iCal be upgraded to be like the MobileMe web calendar?

    So I hadn't really paid much attention to the web-based calendar for MobileMe until I looked at the short video on the Apple website today. I have to say, it looks more functional than iCal does, which seems somewhat ludicrous. I mean, it looks like it's much easier to view events in monthly view and alot easier to add events as well - ie. click and drag to set duration, and the squares for each day are large enough that you can actually read event details.

    Anyone have any idea whether they're going to change the iCal interface? I mean, I suppose one could simply do all the calendaring via the web interface, but that sort of seems to defeat the purpose of the desktop application.

    You can already click and drag to set duration in the desktop application...

    Yeah, just realized that. I don't frequently use anything but a monthly calendar view, so wasn't aware of that when I first posted. Still, the monthly view is far from optimal, IMO. Particularly when you're trying to get information about an event you're looking at.
