iCal Alerts You Can't Miss

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

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!

Toast 5 Titanium Adds Video CD Support

Send Article to a Friend

Toast 5 Titanium Adds Video CD Support -- When Apple announced the CD and DVD burning capabilities of its new Macs, we wondered what it mean for Roxio's Toast, the current standard in media burning. Now, Roxio has released Toast 5 Titanium, a new version that can burn Video CDs which can be played on most DVD Video players. The new version also improves its MP3 Disc, Data CD, Audio CD, and CD Copy formats, includes background burning and a new interface, and adds support for Apple's iMovie and iTunes. Toast 5 Titanium is now shipping for $90. [JLC]
