iTunes can automatically transfer calendar data stored in your iCal, Entourage, Microsoft Outlook or Palm Desktop so that you have all of your important dates with you any place you bring your iPod. I thought I would never use this, but I actually ran into an old friend at the gym and was able to look up a date we met up for dinner on my iPod. It may have been the geekiest move of my life, but it worked!
For tips on how to enable syncing of your other calendars, just
- Open iTunes and connect your iPod to your computer.
- Select the iPod icon in the source pane of iTunes.
- Click the Contacts tab.
- Enable the "Sync iCal calendars" checkbox.
Simply drag your iCalendar or vCalendar files to your iPod, and you can access your calendar even when you are away from your computer.
