I’ve recently switched to Google Calendar (after being seriously hasseled by my co-workers, who thought it was fantastic). So I switched.
At first, I have to admit, I really didn’t get it. I have been using iCal since version 1 (really like it), so I didn’t understand what the fuss was all about. gCal is really just a browser version of iCal. With some parts missing and a whole lot less userfriendly…
But then this morning, it hit me: gCal is what iCal actually could have been if iCal would have been crossplatform and free. Yes, I really think Apple missed an opportunity here.
Anyway, now I’m looking for some tips and tricks to use the shared gCal calendars directly in iCal. Just google for google calendar iCal & you’ll find plenty.
