We’re calendar geeks. Without iCal, we’d be completely lost. But that
doesn’t mean there isn’t room for improvement. For one, we often wish
there was a quick way to view dates on the calendar without having to

You know how annoying
online ads are? There are pop-ups, pop-unders, page takeovers, little

Then we got a MacBook, another iPod, and finally, an iPhone. Soon it
was apparent that our music library was scattered across multiple
machines and the idea of trying to figure out which machine had which
songs became an onerous task. So we just threw them all together,
resulting in tons of unwanted duplicate tracks.
