Nine members gathered in Solutions’ smart new shop to hear about High Sierra (Mac OS 10.13) from Tony Still.

In their determination to keep to the release schedule, it seems that High Sierra was released with a few fairly serious issues.

This… Read more…

For September, 14 members gathered in Solutions' new shop to try out our new venue. We found an immediate benefit by using the permanently installed large screen Apple TV display to demonstrate iOS 11 live as Tony and David presented its features.

The OS had been available for about 24 hours and Tony pointed out a number of differences from the Beta Test versions discussed on the Web. We concentrated on the iPad… Read more…
