Tony Still opened the meeting with a report from the WAMUG Committee meeting where there was a discussion about how useful the weekly bulletin was. Most of the members found it useful. The question was also asked about how many members subscribed to the iCal Calendar from the website. Not many people had noticed it as is only visible when you are logged in (at the bottom of the calendar page).

In his earlier talk about making an iPhone ringtone, Mick had explained how to save the ringtone from Garageband to iTunes so that when you sync your iPhone to iTunes it will copy the file to the iPhone. As some members rely on syncing their devices via iCloud and have little experience of using their Mac with iTunes, Mick explained this month how to do just that. Other than not running out of iCloud storage… Read more…

Twelve members attended this meeting.

John gave a presentation about the different ways that adverts could find their way onto your computer screen.
He started with spam emails, which could either be targeted to you, or just sent out randomly to millions of acquired email addresses.
He emphasised that when filling out on-line forms, you should always look for the 'marketing' tick box and check if the tick means yes… Read more…

There was a good attendance (15 people, including two new members) to hear Michael show some of the options for both Mac and iOS that can be changed using System Preferences and Settings respectively. The first thing was how to find these means of altering the way things work, and as always, particularly on the Mac there was more than one route that could be taken to do this. Having established this, Michael went… Read more…

March's main presentation was given by WAMUG chairman Mick Burrell with an attendance of 15 keen attendees.

Mick started by looking back to the discussion on iCloud. iCloud can back-up and synchronise iOS devices (iPhones and iPads) but it syncs all music and all photos etc. Mick questioned whether this was what users really wanted, especially those having devices with smaller memory sizes. He then explained that iTunes running on a Mac… Read more…

There was a good turnout by 14 members for this meeting.

John gave us a talk about some internet scams, starting with ID theft.
He illustrated a typical scenario whereby a hacker had sent out phishing emails to a long list of email addresses. Each phishing email had a link to a fake website that looked authentic with exact copies of forms to fill out, the Halifax bank was chosen in this… Read more…

Mick demonstrated in real time how to create a ringtone for iPhone — a good reminder of how useful the Garageband App can be. Using an MP3 clip of the opening bars of Dave Brubeck’s ‘Take Five’, he opened a new “Empty” Project in the latest version of Garageband 10.1, (any of the three options offered work) and dragged his MP3 clipping into Garageband. ‘Take Five&rsquo… Read more…

There was a good turn-out of seventeen members and three new visitors to hear Michael give a presentation on a Mac basic – Time Machine. The importance of backing-up cannot be stressed too strongly, particularly by people who have lost files or photos ,and so this presentation was a welcome introduction to the ease of letting your Mac look after itself and of avoiding grief when, as is inevitable, a hard-drive dies… Read more…
