Our September 6 meeting was held at South Callaway High School in Mokane. Jeff Nelson prepared a variety of slides to give us an idea of how they use Macs and iPads in the day-to-day life of the school. They even use a handy program for teachers and staff to report problems they are having with equipment so they can track what devices need help.
We had handed out many Micro Fiber cloths to attending members in July. We will have more at the October 4 meeting for the members that did not receive one before.
Apple systems have changed a lot this month. I watched the keynote and have now had a chance to install the new iOS 10 and new macOS 12 Sierra. Our upcoming meeting will show you some of the new features and help you decide if you want to update your operating systems on iPhones, iPads, Macs, appleWatch and appleTV.
As we plan for next month's meeting, we are looking for anyone in our membership that would look to demonstrate any of your new gadgets. Let me or another board member know what you want to share so we get you on our agenda in November. We will do our best to show 30 gadgets in the time allowed.
Do you want to hang out with some of the gurus that put our meetings together each month? Just talk to any Board Member during the next meeting, and let them know you want to be plugged in and be a part of the planning. We go out to eat once a month on the third Tuesday, and we are always looking for new ideas.
The following people won door prizes at the September meeting:
Trish Alexander - First Aid Bag
Carole Van Vranken - Pen & Pad Mouse
Tom Piper - Flashlight
George Kopp - Stylus
