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!

Last Saturday night marked an interesting point in the development of the Internet as a multimedia delivery system. We were invited to the offices of Point of Presence Company in Seattle to watch the first full-length feature film (called Party Girl) played live over the Internet via CU-SeeMe. I doubt CU-SeeMe will become a major source of movies via the Internet (since it's more designed as a point-to-point system), but proving something can be done is important because it raises the bar for future attempts. A real-time technology for video that works like RealAudio is probably the next step, and then I'm sure we'll see some truly interesting uses of video on the Internet. [ACE]
