iCal Has Some Brains


Try this with iCal for Lion (the leather-clad version that everyone loves to hate because they think it makes them appear classy and discriminating).

  • Make a new event
  • Include the word “breakfast,” “lunch,” or “dinner” in the event name

Did you see it? iCal automatically assigns the time to a typical breakfast, lunch or dinner time.

I have no idea what other words iCal detects in this manner. If you do, I’ve love to hear them. And I have no idea if this is new to Lion or has been around for years. But I thought it was a nice little detail.
