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!

Microsoft Office 2004 Ships

Send Article to a Friend

Microsoft Office 2004 Ships -- Microsoft has officially released Office 2004 for Mac OS X, a significant revision to the near-ubiquitous suite of productivity tools. We plan to look more closely at the changes in Word, Entourage, Excel, and PowerPoint once we've received the software and evaluated whether the new features and fixed bugs in the final versions of each program are worthwhile. For now, suffice to say that you can purchase it for $400 (list price) or $150 (educational); upgrades cost $240. Individual products are also available if you don't want the full suite. You can also download a test drive version (186 MB) that works for 30 days, but keep in mind that Office 2004 requires Mac OS X 10.2.8 or higher. [TJE]
