A hardy 7 members braved February for a dose of nostalgic recycling. John Ansell presented the means of moving your vinyl records into iTunes so that you can listen to them again without all that cleaning, turning over halfway through and unwanted clicks and pops.

John first played some comparative samples, showing how a ripped vinyl record can sound as good as a first-generation CD version and, to some ears, sound better than… Read more…

Fareham Meeting - 11th Feb 2017

We had 10 people including one guest who (whisper it quietly) was from the other side - a ""doze" and Android phone user.

Derek's topic for the meeting was based around panorama images.

Much to all the smart phone users surprise it was discovered that the smart phone could take panoramic or widescreen pictures. Lots of fun ensued as all the smart… Read more…

Mick gave a presentation of the features of iCloud and iCloud Drive, mentioning first how they used to be combined as Mobile me and then just iCloud before being "split" into two separate items. He showed us what each does, how they should work and how to troubleshoot if they don't behave as expected!

After coffee & biscuits there was a lively question and answer session covering both the iCloud/iCloud… Read more…

There was a good turnout by 15 members at this first meeting of 2017.

John gave us a talk about Siri.
Siri has been available on iOS since 2011, but only recently on the Mac starting with Sierra. The demonstrations, mainly from his iPad, were all saved off-line in advance, since Siri is blocked at this venue.
John started by explaining what Siri is, and how to configure the voice… Read more…

Stephen Hardy’s entertaining presentation “Let’s start at the very beginning with A, B, C instead of Do-Re-Mi” (but making a serious point) and was motivated by Mick’s AGM report. It expressed thanks to all members, especially our Chairman Mick, actively involved in running AugWessex. His experience of running voluntary organisations suggests that positive feedback is not often forthcoming. As he will be moving from this… Read more…

John Lemon gave an outstanding presentation on ViewRanger, an app created by the Ordnance Survey which brings the precision and detail of the famous ranges of paper maps to iPad and iPhone. The app itself is free, but the maps, which are downloaded onto your device, have to be paid for. However, while a complete set of the 1:25 range of Great Britain would hit your wallet for almost £300, there is an… Read more…
