2022 NFL Prime Time and Playoffs Schedule for your Mac, iPhone, and iPad Calendars

Updated November 1st, 2022.

The 2022 NFL schedule is out, and it’s super-helpful to know who’s playing and when, so you can make plans. It’s even more useful to have that information displayed within the Calendar apps on your iPhone and iPad and Mac so you don’t have to cross-reference some website with the rest of your work and social life, which most likely is stored in your Calendar app.

For me, it’s especially nice to have the prime time NFL games on my calendar. Those are the ones I want to watch. You’d think you could go to NFL.com and download a prime time schedule, but you’d be wrong– it’s not there!

So I made my own, partly by hand, partly by AppleScript, and here it is. Thursday Night, Sunday Night, and Monday Night– all of those games are here.

MLB Playoffs Calendar for iPhone and Mac Calendars

Updated November 1st, 2022.

Here’s the MLB playoffs calendar for your iPhone and Mac Calendar apps. Subscribe and see updates as new information becomes available. Next year you’ll be pleasantly surprised to see the games appear automatically. The key is to “subscribe,” not to “import.”

The games show up in their own “calendar” (or category, as most of us would call it) so you can uncheck a box to hide them if your calendar gets too cluttered. Each game starts off with a little baseball icon. Yes I have a high school reunion tonight (October 15th).

Sneaky Prime Video scam

Updated November 1st, 2022.

When activating Prime Video on a TV, be careful how you do it!


Recently I was helping someone set up Prime Video on her Apple TV. Anyone who’s done it before knows the drill: you click Prime Video on your TV screen, you click “Sign in,” and you see a screen with instructions:

  1. Go to amazon.com/mytv
  2. Sign in or create an account (they mean “an Amazon Prime account”– and you are probably already signed in)
  3. Enter the following code:

The code is there in big letters and numbers, something like this:

CB0727

So, you grab your Mac, or your iPhone, or your iPad, and you go to amazon.com/mytv, and you enter the code. It’s way easier than trying to sign into your Amazon Prime account on your TV because those devices have keyboards, and the Apple TV doesn’t.

NCAA March Madness Calendar for iPhone, Mac, and iPad

Updated November 1st, 2022.

Here is the 2022 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament calendar, in ics (iCal) form. It’s as up-to-the-minute as I can make it and I’ll keep updating it as games are played. Game times are correct for your time zone– none of that “All Times Eastern” stuff. The scores will be added as the tournament progresses.

Bonus: if you subscribe to the calendar this year, next year you won’t have to do a thing. The games will magically appear in your calendar next March. I’ve been doing this since 2019’s tournament and I plan to keep doing it every year.

How to sync your AOL contacts with your iPhone and iPad

Updated November 1st, 2022.

If you’re an AOL user you may be wondering how to sync your AOL contacts with your iPhone and iPad. It’s not obvious how to do it, and the amount of mis-information suggesting you “try” this and “try” that is really overwhelming.

There is no “try.”

We’re not going to “try.” We’re going to “do.” And in the end, you’ll have your AOL contacts on your iPhone and iPad, and they’ll stay in sync with your contacts on AOL.com.

How to make and use Shortcuts in iOS

Updated November 1st, 2022.

The Shortcuts app in iOS runs custom tasks that you create, either on demand or automatically, based on conditions that you specify. Each task– which could be a simple one-step thing, or a very complex multi-step thing– is called a “Shortcut,” and you create them, and run them, right on your iPhone or iPad. The possibilities are virtually endless, and you don’t have to be a programmer to do it.
