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!

Saturday Night Live Skewers iPhone 5 Tech Blog Coverage

Send Article to a Friend

We’re not sure what’s more amazing about this Saturday Night Live sketch from last week: that the bit is funny, or that it pokes fun at Apple products and the entire industry in a way that doesn’t reflexively rely on lazy rumors or reporting. In it, bloggers from CNET, Wired, and Gizmodo are interviewed about the iPhone 5’s problems such as the new Maps app, lens flare when taking photos of the sun, being too thin and light, and susceptibility to scratches. Count on a trio of guests to put them in their place. (Our apologies to international readers since Hulu isn’t available in other countries. You may be able to find a copy on YouTube or other video sharing sites before NBC has it removed.)favicon follow link

Yes, that's unfortunately true. You can try searching for the video on YouTube and other video services - try "iPhone 5 SNL".

“ "SNL iPhone..." This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by NBC Universal.”

On YouTube, search for saturday night live iphone5. It's a really wonderful piece...

It is a funny piece. Better to find it on Youtube anyway, you can watch without the annoying ads from hulu's version.
