Editing iCal Events in Snow Leopard

Snow Leopard makes looking at event details in iCal easier. In the Leopard version of iCal, you had to double-click an event to reveal only some information in a pop-up box; you then needed to click the Edit button (or press Command-E) to edit an item's information. In Snow Leopard, choose Edit > Show Inspector (or press Command-Option-I) to bring up a floating inspector that provides an editable view of any items selected in your calendar.

Speed Freaks -- Bob Nirenberg <RNIRENBE@us.oracle.com> points out a missing element in FAQtoids 001 about ISDN and serial port limitations.

I noticed you talked about the 115 Kbps limit for Mac serial port connections to ISDN, but you could have mentioned that some ISDN devices connect to your Mac via Ethernet, which relative to ISDN has unlimited capacity.

Another reader noted that you can buy and install cheap, high-speed serial cards in Macs that have card slots and achieve the same results without buying a GeoPort compatible device.
