Microsoft shares March Madness calendar for Outlook users

March Madness pools have always been popular in the workplace. And since a lot of those workplaces are using Microsoft as the default email application, it makes sense for Microsoft to post a shared Outlook calendar which lists all the NCAA tournament action. Just head over to the Office add-ons site and download the March Madness calendar for Outlook, click the Subscribe button, and click Y...

TaskSync for Mac connects Remember the Milk and iCal

If you use Remember the Milk to manage your to-do list on the web, but you want to see all your tasks in iCal on your Mac when you get home, TaskSync has got a solution for you. This free OS X app provides two-way syncing between Remember the Milk and iCal, so any changes you make to one task list will soon show up in the other. You can even use the @ symbol in iCal to create a tag that will show...

Coolendar is a slick natural language online calendar

When you think about it, a calendar is basically a to-do list with dates. Sure, we're used to looking at it in a certain format – all of those little squares, one per day. But coolendar takes the concept of a calendar and strips it from that familiar representation, leaving just a neat, carefully dated to-do list in its wake. Visually, it's very cool. It's got that iPhone-app aesthetic that...

Muji launches calendar, notepad and travel apps for the iPhone and iPad

iOS apps are, perhaps, not the first thing you think about when Muji's concerned, but the modernist homeware and clothing brand has launched three iPad apps, two free, one paid for, and a Japanese-language only iPhone apparel catalog app. We'll start with the iPad apps. Muji Calendar Although the iPad comes with a calendar app built-in, Muji thinks it can do better. In their words, 'MUJ...

Alertful lets you schedule cute, lively email reminders

"Remember Mom's birthday," says the bland email from Google Calendar. Sometimes that's enough, really -- but other times, you may want to add a bit of pizzazz to make things more interesting... Especially if you're sending that scheduled reminder to someone other than yourself. Alertful is a simple, well-designed email alert service. It works kind of like e-cards: there are tailor-made reminders ...

Alarms app is the reminder system you never knew your Mac was missing

If you're on Mac OS X and iCal's notifications just aren't slick or powerful enough for you, you might want to try a new app called Alarms. It's a simple and clean way to set timers, alarms and other notifications, without using iCal. I'm more of a Google Calendar man myself, so I'm finding the lightweight, pretty Alarms app quite useful. It's extremely easy to get started with Alarms. Everyth...

Google Calendar sync now (mostly) works with Outlook 2010

Using Outlook 2010 and wish you had an easy way to keep it in sync with your Google Calendar? Good news! Google has just released an updated version of Google Calendar Sync which works with the latest version of Microsoft's enterprise workhorse... well, mostly anyways. Sync only works with 32-bit installs of Outlook 2010, though to be fair even Microsoft recommended that users roll with that v...

Google sync issue for iPhone sends you to web dead end

How much does Google hate the iPhone? Well, I can count two ways. One is in the pisspoor shape of the Google Mobile app for iPhone. I begrudgingly use it because of the insta-local searches. Yeah, Google on Safari is supposed to work this way as well, but more often than not I have to add a click to get local results. But seriously, have you used the Google Mobile app lately? Gotta love that ju...

SpeedDate is an awesome Chrome extension for Google Calendar users

If you're using Google Chrome, chances are good that you've got a Google account and use at least some of their Web apps. If Google Calendar happens to be one of those, you owe it to yourself to install the SpeedDate extension for Google Chrome. Once you've got it installed and grant permission to submit events to your Google Calendar via OAuth, SpeedDate is ready to serve. Click its icon in y...

Windows tip: Use the built-in calculator for date calculations

When I wrote about the TimeAndDate Birthday Calculator, commenter Kevyn was quick to note that you can do "pretty much the same job" using Windows 7's built-in calculator. That statement may be a bit of a stretch, since Windows' calculator does not compute differences in hours, minutes or seconds. But still, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that it can quickly and painlessly calculate the d...

Gmail gets a new way to attach Google Calendar invitations

Gmail and Google Calendar now work even better together, with a new Gmail interface for attaching event invitations. When you compose a new message, you'll see an "attach invitation" link under the subject field, right next to the familiar "attach file" button. You can fill in an event title, location, and time, and everyone in the To/Cc/Bcc fields will be added to the event. If your friends h...

Happening iPhone app breathes new life into Yahoo!'s Upcoming

Upcoming, the venerable social events calendar that was founded in 2003 and acquired by Yahoo! in 2005, has undoubtedly seen better days. There are other places to post events and invite friends now -- notably, Facebook -- and Upcoming has dwindled in popularity. There's still a goldmine of great events on the site, though, especially if you live in a big city. Happening, a new Upcoming client for...

Weird Wednesday Holiday Edition

I'm more of a Festivus guy, but apparently there are weird and wacky holidays every day of the year -- and that's just in the good ol' USA, where we can find a reason to "celebrate" anything. If you chart global weird holidays you have to zoom the chart out an order of magnitude. So in this holiday edition I'm going to stick to weird US holidays, the dates for which are lovingly curated by the bes...

EventSync - sync Facebook events to your Mac's iCal

It frustrates me that so many different services have a calendar function, and yet it's still a pain in the ass to make sure that my personal calendar is up to date. More often than not I find myself manually creating events using copy-and-paste, instead of the event being automatically created for me by whatever service I'm using. If you happen to be a Facebook Events user, a utility called Even...

Thin Calendar: desktop calendar with Google appointments

You may have caught my post about Dateline, a cool, minimal calendar that sits right on your desktop. Dateline's great, but it's Mac-only. Windows users don't have to feel left out anymore, though. Thin Calendar is a Dateline-inspired Windows app that does much the same thing, but gives you access to your Google Calendar appointments instead of the Mac-only iCal. Thin Calendar has a semi-transpa...
