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!

Dropbox Drops Pro Price, Adds Pro Features

To compete with pricing from Google Drive and OneDrive, Dropbox is now offering a single 1 TB tier of Dropbox Pro for $9.99 per month. More interesting for those who don’t need any more space are Dropbox Pro’s new features, including view-only permissions for shared folders, password protection and expiration dates for shared links, and remote wipe of Dropbox folders on lost devices. The Packrat option is now called Extended Version History too, but pricing remains the same.
