The session started with a lively Q&A session covering things such as applications that run at startup, why Mac A could see Mac B on the network but Mac B couldn't see Mac A and why Safari gives a "blocked plugin" message on certain YouTube videos and requests an update to the Flash plugin but the update doesn't fix it.

The meeting opened with a short movie entitled "Togetherness" which showed how smart phones are replacing normal face to face social interactions.

The Q and A session was probably our most lengthy and varied to date with topics ranging from iPhone 3 data access when the password has been forgotten to using a MacBook Pro in Spain.

John opened the meeting with 18 members present.

Michael was unable to attend so we didn’t learn about what a marvellous application Pages is. Hopefully this is a treat for a future meeting.

Barry had his presentation on Aperture ready and we commenced with that. The first recommendation was one which we have heard many times in the past - some heed it but more should - back up your data on… Read more…

The meeting was opened by John, 20 members were present

Martin started the proceedings by telling us about 'Maintaining your Mac' and asking us why everyone else had more trouble with maintaining their Macs than he did, and wondering if it was because they were making life to complicated for themselves. His guiding principle was KISS - Keep it simple, stupid!
This, for him, means:

Alan gave a very entertaining talk on Jail-breaking iOS devices. Various topics were discussed:

Is it Legal? - Yes but will violate the terms of use agreement between end user and Apple, forget warranties and support.
