Happy Birthday to an Apparent Loser

It's the birthday of Albert Einstein, born in Ulm, Germany (1879). He was taught at home for a while, and when he finally went to school, his teachers thought he was developmentally disabled. In high school, one of his teachers tried to expel him because all he did in class was sit in the back of the room smiling. He finally dropped out at the age of 16.
He barely made it through college, couldn't get a job in any science field, and finally found a job at the Swiss patent office, evaluating patent applications. In the evenings after he got home from the office, he worked on his own ideas about physics, and in 1905, he published four papers that revolutionized the field of physics and introduced among other things the Special Theory of Relativity and his famous equation, E = mc2.

Sync iCal to Google Cal and vice-versa ($25)

Here's a question I've had and finally found an answer to.

I know how to import google calendars into iCal, but I haven't learned how to export iCal into google calendars. I couldn't share iCal calendars with people who didn't run iCal. (i could do it on the web, but it was pretty flat). 

Busy Sync is the answer. It seamlessly syncs back and forth between these platforms. Check it out and try a 30 day trial.
