Has Spring been good to you, or are you feeling waterloaded? Summer solistice (the longest day of the year) is now behind us (that means the days are getting shorter, even with Daylight Savings Time), so we need to make the most of each day.
Our last gathering was the Annual appleJAC MUG Picnic where 42 members, families and friends enjoyed wonderful food (outstanding selections), great companies and splendid weather. It was so nice to be able to just sit, eat and talk with all of you who attended (and we missed those of you who couldn't). Letha and I were so happy to share our new home and grounds with you, and appreciate all of the nice comments.
Next month we return to Kennedy Hall at Immaculate Concept School to cover our annual topic of iOS and Mac OS Maintenance (formerly known as MacFixIt). Because today's cases are mostly sealed, we will no longer offer hard drive and memory replacement, but instead, George and I will be focusing on how to protect your Macs and iDevices, improve their performance and Mac them look better, while Joe will remind us of some things NOT to do with them. It will be a great session.
Mark your calendars for July 2 (yes, only two days before firecracker time) at 7:00pm. We will also be offering a sneak peek at the newest Mac 10.9 (or 11.0) Mavericks operating systems, as well as iOS 7, both of which will be major performance and feature improvements, hopefully to be introduced by the last week of September. As always, bring family and friends to join us for fun and education . . .
PS: don't forget the iOS Photo Contest . . . the rewards could be yours!!! Don't miss my review below about backups and recovery, two important features of Maintenance (there's a lot more at the next meeting).
