Take Control Tackles Thanksgiving Dinner -- A quick note for our Canadian friends: if you're thinking about Thanksgiving on October 9th, take a look at our just-released "Take Control of Thanksgiving Dinner." It's a very cool experiment in applying Joe Kissell's skills in breaking a complex task into easily accomplished steps. Joe has walked thousands of people through upgrading Mac OS X, setting up backups, and maintaining their Macs, but those tasks are nothing compared to hosting Thanksgiving dinner. We've all put a ton of work into designing the ebook to help with planning and cooking a huge meal, including a 19-page "Print Me" file that contains shopping lists, recipes to tape up in your kitchen, and customizable schedules to keep everything on track. You can think of the ebook as a "Getting Things Done" approach to Thanksgiving, or a geek's guide to the most complex meal most of us will ever prepare. (If you're in the U.S., you have some time before worrying about Thanksgiving, and for anyone elsewhere in the world, Thanksgiving dinner is mostly an opportunity for culinary tourism.)
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.
