Using iCloud, sharing a Calendar from your iPhone, iPad, or Mac OS X iCal with anyone else is now easier than ever. It’s a straight forward process that requires iCloud, set it up if you haven’t already and get sharing, here’s how:
The recipient can then find the shared calendar in their own iCloud Calendars list, but all parties must be using iOS 5+ and Mac OS X 10.7.2+. You can also choose “Public Calendar” to share the calendar with the world.
Great tip discovered by TheGraphicMac.

Looking for a few more gorgeous wallpapers for your desktop? This pack of colorful aurora themed images should do the trick, with two variations of each image, one with a Windows 7ish aurora stripey look and the other a blurred faint aurora more reminiscent of OS X. They all look great, and with the 2560×1600 resolution they should fit just about any screen size you’re working with.
The wallpaper pack is hosted on DeviantArt, if you’re having trouble finding their download link it’s highlighted clearly below in an image, just look on the right side of the DA page.

If you’re in a hurry, visiting a busy Apple Store for a quick purchase can be the worst part of the experience. With all the store reps tied up with other customers, you can just sit around waiting aimlessly to buy something you already know you want. Apple’s newly updated Store app aims to reduce that wait time, by allowing you to pre-order Apple products for quick in-store pickup, and with some other items, just buy them outright from your iPhone via the apps self checkout EasyPay option, skipping the lines completely.
Install the app on your iPhone, and with eligible store items you use the iPhones camera to scan the bar code and pay directly from your own iPhone with a credit card, no interaction with store personnel is required. Pay and you’re on your way.
For those wondering, the EasyPay portion of the app requires an iPhone 4 or newer due to the higher resolution of the camera used for scanning barcodes.
Here’s the official feature list via the iTunes App Store:
This is a pretty great app for anyone in a time crunch (or for the agoraphobic), hopefully Apple expands the purchasable items list to include even more products.
