Are iCal’s days numbered?
I am SO sorry for that pun. Please forgive me â€“ I honestly tried not to write it, I really did, but I am just not strong enough.
And no, for the record, I do not really think iCal is on the way out, (after all, would Apple have finally fixed the icon if it didn’t think iCal had a long and rosy future ahead of it?) but is anyone else having trouble finding those iCal calendar subscriptions Apple used to make available? Or, for that matter any mention of iCal at all on Apple’s site (aside from its cameo in the 300 new features of Leopard, that is).
Previously, going to Apple.com/iCal brought you to the iCal page where you could find the link to iCal’s calendar library subscription pages â€“ full of goodies such as the latest Movie Releases, or NFL schedules. Now that link redirects you to Leopard’s 300 New Features propaganda page. A quick search of Apple.com reveals iCal is now a very hard app to find info on. iCal’s support page leads you to similar dead ends. Clicking on “Specifications” for iCal brings you to Leopard, and the link Apple’s “Mac 101: iCal” page gives you for the old iCal library page http://www.apple.com/ical/library/ returns Apple’s “Page not found” screen.
For the moment, all the current iCal calendars we had previously subscribed to seem to be working correctly, but it’s not looking good for future Apple served calendars. Can any of you web sleuths find where Apple has hidden iCal’s library page? First one to do so becomes my BFF. Thanks.
