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!

Apple Design Award 2006 Winners

Send Article to a Friend

Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) wrapped up this year with the annual Apple Design Award winners, who received not only fame and Mac developer cred, but a special cube award that lights up when touched. (How is this illuminated miracle accomplished? The winners of the 2004 award for best student project didn't merely take theirs apart like any normal person; they peeked inside using a CT scanner and built 3D reconstructed models, of course!)

Congratulations to this year's winners, and we encourage you to visit their Web sites to get a sense of why they were chosen.
