[Updated]: syncing iCal with Google Calendar using CalDAV

31 07 2008
  • deutsch

With iCal you where able to subscribe to remote calendards via urls and publish your calendars to WebDAV shares already. But this was not really a synchronization as the subscribed calendars where not editable.

Since a few days Google Calendar supports the CalDAV protocol for syncing calendards via HTTP/HTTPS protocol. Now you can setup your Google Calendar in iCal. Simply open the preferences of iCal and go to “Accounts”:

iCal Accounts1

Add a new account by clicking on the + sign at the bottom. A settings pange will appear for the account details.

iCal Google2

Username and password are the same as your Google Mail accounts. You have to expand the server options to enter the Calendar url. The url scheme of this is:

https://www.google.com/calendar/dav/[ your Google Calendar email address ]/user

Now click “add” and you’re done. The new calendar will appear in the list of calendars and is now editable. It will be synchronised regularly with Google Calendar.

iCal Google 2

[Update: 2008-10-07] If you like to add your additional Google Calendars as well you need the so called Calendar ID from Google for the CalDAV URL. This can be found in the settings of the specific Calendar in your Google Calendar account.

So the resulting URL would look like this:

e.g. https://www.google.com/calendar/dav/7oddefoo1ltvq0psfhbp8vs4gc@group.calendar.google.com/user

How to tame a self restarting iTunes

31 07 2008
  • deutsch

From time to time my iTunes behaves very strange and restarts itself when I try to quit it. This is very annoying as one can’t even shutdown or reboot the computer in this situation as iTunes will always interupt the shutdown process. Only a hard reboot will help

I did some research and found the solution on a blog and the Apple Forum. The main cause of this behaviour is the SRS iWOW plugin. This has a process called “genredetection” which will restart iTunes if it quits unexpectedly. When iTunes restarts it will spawn a new genredetection process. Now when you try to shutdown iTunes normally then it’s OK for the new genredetection process. But not for the remainder of the last iTunes session. So it will restart iTunes. Now a new genredetection process is spawned ….

The only way to stop this is to terminate all the genredetection processes manually. You can do this via the ActivityMonitor.app or in the Terminal.app by typing killall genredetection. After this iTunes can be quitted normally.

If you need an temporary internet connection on the run and don’t have a special data rate on your mobile contract then maybe the Vodafone Websession is what you need.

This is a special mobile accesss point for session based internet connections. You will be charged on you normal telephon bill our via websession voucher. All you need is some special settings for the connection

Vodafone Websession Webseite

You can choose to get 30 minutes, 1 hour our 24 hour session. For the 30 minutes session you’ll pay 1,95 EUR which isn’t quite cheap. But if you don’t have any data rate booked on your contract you’ll surely pay about 20 EUR per 1 MByte!!!

Normaly Vodafone is selling the Websession package with special UMTS/3G hardware like an USB-Stick or 3G ExpressCard. But if you got a mobile phone with an UMTS/3G modem which is recognized by your computer you’re all done. All you need is set up some special connection settings

Here are the “secret” settings:

Settings Vodafone Websession
APN: event.vodafone.de

greetings from Cupertino

This morning on my way to the office I saw this MacOS X error message on the two giant O2-Arena displays. Looks like the media player crashed unexpectedly and produced this nice error message.

At least they are using our favourite MacOS instead of crappy Windoze.
