Chapter 12How Do I Track My Appointments?

Do you, like the White Rabbit in Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, find yourself constantly saying, “Oh my ears and whiskers, how late it’s getting”? Well, you’ve come to the right place, because the iPad can help. Not only can you can use it to read Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (that will just make you later than you already are, though), but also you can take advantage of the Calendar app. It turns your tablet into an electronic administrative assistant that stores your appointments, and even reminds you when they’re coming up. Oh my ears and whiskers, how punctual you’ll be!
