Seeking advice about Android Calendar search functions...

by Glassmn / May 15, 2010 4:33 PM PDT

Like the rest of the tech loving society I am eagerly awaiting the release of the Evo... Having never used an Android though I thought I would go play with one to make sure I was sure I wanted to pre order... Alas my excitement came to a screeching halt when I realized that there was no SEARCH For the calendar!!!

How is this even possible... from GOOGLE non the less???

I am an obsessive calendar maintenance person and don't use any exchange servers... I have spent the last 7 years recording everything in my Palm OS calendars and regularly search from my Treo... (yes I am embarrassed that a self respecting tech toy geek like myself is still using a Treo - in my own defense - I ran into this exact same problem when I bought the Palm Pre at release forcing me to return it... Then earlier this year I took a stab at using a blackberry... But felt like I was trapped in a DOS hell)

From the various blogs / forums I have read it seems that this is a known issue - yet I've never heard it mentioned in the countless BOL, Buzz reports, loaded, Kent, Bonnie, and other phone reviews that vie heard.... Grrrr

I saw one or two comments about HTC having their own solution... And several apps that offer a solution... Even one comment that said it was resolved in android 2.1

I would appreciate any input....

I also read one comment saying you can only sync one months worthy of entries... But assume that was a mistake... Otherwise I am just gonna have to kill myself.


(sorry for the wordy post)

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
