Looks like North Campus may have not received the email that was sent out about the new Lobo Mobile app for iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad/Blackberry/Palm, and others.  I'm copying it below in case anyone is interested.

In other news, SMRT is working closely with the medical school IT crew to find an automated solution to keeping the Google Calendar in sync with the MEDS Calendar.  We apologize that the Google Calendar isn't up and running yet -- we know how helpful it has been for some of you.  Here's the situation:  Basically, the problem is that the faculty are set up to be able to edit the MEDS Calendar, so they can change things as needed.  However, those changes aren't automatically reflected in the Google Calendar -- the updates have been done manually by the effort of Rob Langmead and others in our hard-working IT crew.  Not only is it a pain to do by hand, it also introduces another step where errors can be made.

For this reason, we're working to find a way to get MEDS and Google to work together automatically.  Keep your fingers crossed, we hope to have something working soon.  If you have any fresh ideas that you think could help us figure this out, don't hesitate to speak up!

Thanks for your support.  See you tomorrow!
