iCal Alerts You Can't Miss

Did you miss that tiny little iCal alert dialog? Use a more prominent Open File alarm.

First save an image, text file, sound, or movie that will really fill your screen and grab your attention.

Select an iCal event and choose Open File as the alert type. Choose your unmissable file as the one to open.

Set more alerts with more files to open for the same event if you like. You won't miss an appointment with one of these alerts!

I watched this with great interest. The questions were great... as I am about the same age... and am getting ready to set up my "new" gen.3 iPad. I also have the new Apple TV and wish that all video Podcasts were at least 720p or 1080p. Now that I have all the latest (Apple) gadgets and watch most of my "TV" through iTunes and the internet (although I have DirecTV Premium) I am mostly looking for "Hi-Def" video. Thanks for a great show. Perhaps in the future they can be a little higher video quality.
