Planning out the term
I’d never really used iCal previously, instead relying on Google Calendar for its online any-computer access, as well as my handphone’s calendar system for reminders to do certain tasks. I’d found myself wanting to plot out my lesson schedule for the rest of my practicum, but it’s quite a bit of a hassle on Google’s web interface.
However, after finding out that I could sync iCal with my Google Calendar, I decided to give it a spin, and I find that I like it quite a lot. It handles faster than Google Calendar, and the syncing capability means I can plan out my (school) schedule at home and still access/edit it at school (on the Windows laptop I’ve been provided).
Suddenly I’m interested in the iPhone once more – I’m pretty sure that it should sync with iCal pretty well. I guess I’ll wait and see if a 32GB version is released this year. If so, and the battery life is improved, I might just switch when I’m next able to upgrade my handset.
