April in Bournemouth saw 9 members gathered, including one new member (welcome Barrie). We were treated to a fascinating journey through the history of type, design and printing from Euan Williams with many an intriguing digression along the way.

Euan opened with a great quote from Adrian Frutiger (he of the typeface) who said that "Type is the clothing a word wears, so it must be subordinate to the content ... The whole… Read more…

There were 13 members attending this month, and Derek gave us two interesting talks, covering WhatsApp and Yojimbo.
We moved back to the classroom for this meeting, so that Derek could use 2 projectors to show his MacBook and iPhone on different screens.

WhatsApp is a free communication app for smart phones, which includes the iPhone. The product enables "instant" communication in text, image, live video and audio.

Tony raised our understanding of Malware and the ways in which Apple helps defend us from it. His talk focused on macOS but most points are also applicable to iOS. He excluded eMail and Social Media from his talk as these have been covered by others and the vulnerabilities are user-enabled.
Malware, short for Malicious Software, includes viruses, worms, trojan horses, spyware, adware and ‘bots’. All are program code, designed to… Read more…

There was another good attendance, with 20 people coming along to learn some of the basics about iTunes. Michael’s presentation covered playing CDs and music from the iTunes Library, ripping CDs and a little technical stuff about the best settings to use for whatever you are copying (there are only two, so not too difficult to follow), and how to load audio books, which need a different technique in some respects.
