I've been holding off doing a show on iCal for a while now, but I'm glad I did. Leopard and the iPhone has brought a new lease of life to iCal, the calendar application included with Mac OS X.
Under the hood, there's a ton of cool and really useful features that now make iCal a credible and reliable tool to help you plan, organise and share your busy schedule.
In fact, there's so much stuff to cram in, I've had to split the show into two parts! In this first part, I cover:
iCal User Interface Basics
Creating and Managing Calendars
Creating and Editing Events
Setting up Mail for iCal invitations
Using Invitations to Setup Meetings
Using Data Detectors in Mail
Setting up To Dos via Mail
Part 2 will be along shortly looking at some of the more advanced features of iCal.
