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…

This month the members attending were down to seven.

Michael Corgan travelled from Bridport to give us a very interesting presentation, describing and demonstrating the many features of the Preview application.
He emphasized that it was much more than just a document viewer. You can take screenshots, scan from a USB connected scanner, or import photos directly from a camera or from a file, then crop, resize, edit and convert them 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.

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…

Mick explained how to make full use of Calendar on both Macs and IOS devices. Assuming one is using iCloud, the calendars are synchronised on each device. Make, modify or delete an entry and the update will be pushed to the others via iCloud. To make a new entry on the Mac just click in on the calendar roughly where you want to make the entry and the enter detail window opens. On IOS you… 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…

John Hooper appeared from the Mysterious East - well, Southampton - to give an enjoyable demonstration of ways to:

first, see what is in the smallest print on screen, creating either a magnifying glass to move around the screen, or enlarging the screen and moving around within that.
and second, get your Mac and iPad/iPhone to talk to you, listen to you,and turn what you say into text or to carry… 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…
