I agree that this is more than disconcerting. It is a huge flaw in Apple's thinking. Although I have a laptop, a pad, and an iPhone, there are times when I want and need a piece of paper. Especially when I am running errands and my hands are full, I don't want to risk dropping my phone while fumbling to punch up my on-screen Reminders list. Although I use Evernote reminders occasionally, an integrated calendar which lets me enter and view both appointments/events and tasks -- and receive audible reminders when a deadline is approaching -- is critical to both my business and personal life. For the last several weeks I have been researching alternatives, and for the money (too bad we have to spend it) BusyCal meets my criteria. It provides a sidebar for tasks; you can coordinate the colors for the calendar categories, you can print just a list and even view just the task list. It will synch with Calendar and Reminders on the iPhone. For someone like me who is on a desktop computer most of the time the BusyCal interface and functions are ideal.
