There were 13 members at this meeting and John gave us a presentation covering 3 topics.

He began with On-line Banking, this basically allows you to access your account details and statements from your own bank or building society, and to carry out transactions like transferring money or paying bills etc. The main advantages are… 24/7 accessibility, portability away from home, easy to use and it’s free!

John started by demonstrating how to use Fullscreen Zoom then Window Zoom, the latter being fully adjustable using a 'floating' controller icon.

He then covered Magnifier, which uses the main camera to view small… Read more…

May's meeting's main event was an introduction to some of iTunes' features from Michael Corgan featuring some beautifully orchestrated slides. Michael started with the rhetorical question of "What does it do?", to which the answer was "A lot!".

Michael continued by describing the many ways to control iTunes, including on-screen buttons, function keys and keyboard shortcuts. He then moved on to adding material to iTunes' library (notably by… Read more…

“Twiddling Type”

If we were to take one underlying message from this fascinating subject it is that good style and appearance should enable the content and not divert attention away from it. The reader should be fully absorbed in the content and barely be aware of all the effort and care put into its layout on the page.

Before the interval, Euan took us through the gamut of font… Read more…

This month at Beaminster was Show and Tell - people were invited to show their favourite or most useful apps for iPad and/or iPhone and the response was heartening as, apart from Michael, 5 other people stepped up to the projector. We saw a range of apps -among them a map app that shows footpaths, a public transport app that gives details of transport options (down to the bus-stop and any walking time) for… Read more…

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…

The various new features of Apple’s recently upgraded iWorks apps, Pages, Numbers and Keynote were introduced by Euan. They include gobal font replacement through a document, bookmarks and notes, along with Collaboration and Keynote Live. These were shown by switching the projector between two computers, where we see his Airdrop to watch his presentation running from a second computer on the screen. KeyNote Live does not require the recipient to have the Keynote… Read more…
