The meeting was once again held upstairs in The Pheasant Inn's Shoemakers Hall. After a small group sampled the extensive evening menu downstairs, nine members and two guests enjoyed a detailed illustrated talk by David Moon on the Apple Watch; time-keeping is clearly the least exciting function of this extra-ordinary device which can now measure a number of medically-relevant functions, act in many ways as a small readily accessible iPhone and, as… Read more…

11 members and 1 visitor turned out on a wet Autumn evening, lured by the prospect of All Fired Up’s excellent coffee and cake - and maybe also by the prospect of Euan explaining why Apple’s M series of chips represent a significant technological advance.

Euan’s presentation covered the various processes involved in chip manufacture, from spark erosion, chemical etching through to the use of extreme ultraviolet light… Read more…

For our second post-Lockdown meeting at the Colliton Club is was great to have 23 people attending including members from outside of Dorchester and three visitors.
David ran through several of the new features in the latest release of IOS & iPadOS 15.0 already now 15.0.2. Whilst superficially there seems little change, once you start to look in detail this really is a major upgrade but quite a lot of… Read more…

Euan explained the technical wonders and evolution of Apple’s new Apple Silicon chips, starting with the M1, which are replacing Intel processors across the Mac range and is also used in the iPad Pro. He discussed some very technical details but the talk was aimed at a more general audience and he successfully held our interest and attention. We all felt informed rather than bewildered!

After visiting the development of integrated… Read more…

After a brief taster of a couple of the delights of IOS 15 to whet the appetite for the topic being addressed in detail at our November meeting Euan introduced us to ePub. After describing where ePub fits alongside PDF and HTML we were shown examples of ePub documents can embody text, video, audio and images and what's more Euan showed us we all already possessed the means of generating ePub files. The attendees using… Read more…

Salisbury’s first meeting post-lockdown was held in the old Shoemakers Hall at The Pheasant Inn, an early Tudor building in the city centre. Though the weather was atrocious, 8 members and 1 guest attended.

As a personal gift for help in the past, Barry gave Brian Tapper a voucher entitling a couple to have a steam train excursion as he thought that though Brian was an avid photographer of steam… Read more…

For Bournemouth’s first post-lockdown meeting, 10 members and one visitor gathered in All Fired Up to exchange stories of lockdown experiences and for the customary questions and answers.

Lockdown purchases included home automation, notably ‘connected’ doorbells, multi-port dongles for USB-C Macs, new iPhones and Apple’s new AirTags. The generally agreed most useful feature of Apple’s technology during lockdown was video conferencing/calling… Read more…

New, organiser, new venue and lots of familiar faces. Stuart has taken over from Jeanette and as we'd lost our old booking found us a new room - in The Victory Hall at Warsash. The wi-fi signal is a little weak but we'll find a way round that. It was a really good turn out for our first face-to-face meeting post lockdown with nearly all our regulars present. There was no formal presentation… Read more…

This was our first face-to-face meeting following the switch to virtual on-line meetings because of Covid. It was also the first in our new venue Yarn Barton. There were six attendees: three from Beaminster and three stalwarts of the club whose support and expertise is most helpful. Since this was a new beginning David P explored what members might want from the sessions and established that a balance of presentation on diverse… Read more…
