As a change from the normal Apple related talks, Richard gave us a fascinating insight into the world of Hi-Fi. Having been delving into it since the 1970s, he shared with us his wealth of knowledge and exploded some myths and hype. He finished by going into more detail about loudspeakers - the different types and designs - explaining their strong and weak points.… Read more…

David was focusing on the file management of Photos on the Mac emphasising that he was talking about libraries and not albums. A photos library with the suffix .photoslibrary contains everything in Photos with single database of the photos and all the relative albums and search functions. In the early days of the iCloud My Photo Stream was the default method of linking photos across devices via the Cloud. Photo Stream could not and cannot… Read more…

Ten members located themselves at Warsash for a couple of navigation-themed presentations. First, David showed us how to find ourselves with Apple Maps, with both Mac and iOS devices. Some of us were clearly more in need of navigational assistance- or assistance in how to navigate- than others, but we all found our destinations eventually! Secondly, Mick talked about what3words (see what3words.com), a super-easy (well, once you've got the hang of it… Read more…

With an excellent attendance it was a lively meeting. David P showed how Numbers could be used to test whether your passport falls foul of any of the rules being applied to test validity for visits to EC destinations. Euan in very short order had prepared a summary of what had been revealed at the WWDC event - new chips, new features. Of particular note was the way multiple open windows will be handled so as… Read more…

On a warm and sunny Salisbury evening, 11 members and one guest were treated to a quartet of presentations.

Euan showed the versatility of Text Edit, how it can be used to read documents in almost any original format and convert them to ones suitable for use.

Ten members came to Warsash for an interactive tutorial from Euan on iMovie, with short films he'd already produced and some he put together on the spot, complete with amusing sound effects. Some of us had filmed short clips, so that we could edit and manipulate them into something hopefully entertaining- and the results were indeed worth watching. Well, apart from Stuart, whose ageing MacBook (2009!) proved positively prehistoric when trying to edit 1080p footage… Read more…

We were rather a small group for Dorchester with just 10 members present. Mick demonstrated how to create a Database in Numbers and in this instance he had used the IOS, iPad, version demonstrating that whilst a little more obtuse than the Mac , it nevertheless has all the same capabilities which are very comprehensive. The example database was about the storage and monitoring of food product - Mick does not like broccoli! Those of us locked… Read more…

The planned presentations on iPad having been deferred due to the unavoidable absence of the requesting members, Barry gave an overview of how the absence of significant computing power hampered original research. In a hospital environment, he used punched-cards to collect information that he then able to work on to produce an article for the regional Hospital Board.

Later, data collected in General Practice was managed exclusively by the Pharmaceutical Industry.

David highlighted to new improved features of the lates version of FaceTime which need Monterey 12.3 and IOS 15.4 to get the maximum benefit. As everyone present was familiar with online banking we passed over that item on the agenda though Gill Francis drew our attention that you can and how see see your PIN number via most, if not all online banking apps. In the second half using two projectors Euan showed… Read more…
