MacOS 10.9 Mavericks has arrived, along with a host of new and upgraded products. After only one day of review of these new opportunities, the appleJAC Board quickly concurred that a change of focus was needed for the Nov. 5 meeting. We have dubbed it: "Mavericks plus Update Mania", as you can see in the agenda (see below) showing a splash of iconic topics.
Our last meeting was focused on "iOS7: A Whole New Perspective" when George Kopp provided an outstanding overview of many of the 250 new features in this operating system for our iPhones, iPads and iPod touches. (George followed this with a delightful iPad Class on Oct. 20 which many non-members attended). We also announced the iDevice Photo contest which was won by Dan Walsh (first and People's Choice, see earlier article), with Julie Smith and Ros Moulton coming in second and third. The evening doorprizes were won by:
- Bonnie Culley Wooden laptop
- Jule Smith Make the Best of 75 Projects (book)
- Dustin Stark Incipio white iPhone 4/4S case
- Gayle Fuller Uniea gray iPhone 4/4S case
- Tom Vaughn Qmadix black iPhone 4/4S case
- Joes Mertzlufft Uniea Rebelution iPhone 4/4S case
- Bestsy Zindle Qmadix black/gray iPhone 4/4S case
- Peggy Landwher Orange/black diamond iPhone 5/5S case
- Larry Garvin iPhone 4/4S power cord and charger
- Jim Stevenson iPhone 4/4S power cord and charger
- Steve Archer iPhone 4/4S earphones/mic
- Paul VanHorn iPhone 4/4S earphones/mic
- Terry Larkin iPod schuffle charger cord
Door prizes the next month will be reduced due to reduced inventory, but will include an iTunes $10 gift card. How do you feel about the drawings, would you like them to be expanded, reduced or eliminated?
I hope you can make it (along with friends and family) to our next meeting. It is going to be fun and very educational. Our previous topic of "20 Gadgets in 60 Minutes" will be postponed to either December or January (let us know if you have a preference).
