The second one on the use of Country specific address formats in Contacts and the use of the Chronos Labelist program to get a greater degree of flexibility of labels and Contact listings than is supplied in the basic Contacts application.

Discussions covered RAID storage and exploiting undocumented features in the… Read more…

Our Q&A session solved a few problems ranging from how to split clips in iMovie to how to reset your password for this web site. We then went on to look at some favourite apps including Shazam which we all tried to fool (with some but very little success) by playing music from obscure artists, the new filing app InterconneX (from Econ Technologies) for iPad and finally Hopscotch which some older members with… Read more…

A virtue of having only a few members attend a meeting is that the discussions and information sharing involves only one conversation which involves all the attendees. Today we only had 5 members attending which suited the topic which was a "Show and Tell" session where the members were invited to describe the free and cheap applications that they find useful. Given that we are expecting the summer to be over and the weather… Read more…

With yet another good turn out in spite of the hot weather, Vicky of Solutions (Bournemouth) gave her presentation on iPhoto.

After a quick tour of iPhoto's main screen, she explained the various means of obtaining support. As well as the Help menu, Apple 'find out how' tutorials are a good source of information about many Mac topics including iPhoto. She also told us that phone calls to AppleCare could be made more economically by… Read more…

John introduced the meeting with over 21 members and guests present, on a very hot evening.

Not to pre-empt the Q&A session scheduled for later, Alan opened the meeting with an answer to an unasked question, explaining the reasoning behind Apple's choice of name for the next incarnation of OSX, "Mavericks" - it involves a Californian beach and a dog apparently.

Mick then took the floor with a talk explaining the principles behind Cloud Computing, starting with a bit of history about how the needs… Read more…
