Lionel began the meeting with a short Q & A session followed by a brief explanation of Dropbox and its uses. This was a little curtailed by a small problem with the wi-fi connection not allowing a demonstration.

However this was forgotten when Mick gave an interesting demonstration of the use of Smart Folders, Smart Albums in iPhoto and Smart Playlists in iTunes. It was shown how these can automate the sorting… Read more…

John opened the meeting with 19 members present.

Mick talked about Smart folders in finder, and in three Apple applications.
The first example was Mail, in which smart mailboxes keeps a copy, or rather a pointer to the original message. This is similar to  Rules, but can process sent mail as well. (It is worth noting that this limitation in Rules can be worked around… Read more…

This month we were looking at two aspects of using a Mac that are not new but seem not to be widely used - at least by those attending last Wednesday. Firstly, Gordon took us through using Smart Folders in the Finder, Mail, iPhoto and iTunes to show us how they could be used to automatically collect certain items together for ease of use. We then went on to look at the differences between POP and… Read more…

We had eight attendees at the meeting including Euan and Martin from the west.
The subject was Lion - as this is quite a hefty topic Derek decided to use the skills of Apple’s Phil Schiller, Senior Vice President Worldwide Product Marketing, and Craig Federighi Vice President OS X Software to introduce Lion from Apple’s perspective.

He then had Soldierknowsbest (Mark Weston) a technical reviewer to present the Features of Lion… Read more…

As far as content goes, it was one of our busiest meetings so far - the discussions were still in full swing when I had to call time. Doug and Luke had already downloaded and been using Lion so between them gave the rest of us a taste of what it's all about. Doug showed us some of the new features of Safari, Address Book and iCal and Luke showed us Launch Pad and Mission Control… Read more…

Last evening was the first at the slightly later time of 7.00 pm and while it is probable that themain attraction was learning about Lion, our main feature, nevertheless with 20 people in attendance this was the best meeting since the enthusiastic opening of the Bournemouth venue.

However an unveiling of the new operating system didn't happen. The guys at Solutions had still not received a copy to work with! But all… Read more…

John opened the meeting with 21 members present. Gordon, Maggie and Terry sent apologies.

The first presentation was by Mark, of the 'Show me' app for iPad.
He first loaded some photos onto the iPad using a card adapter, and then demonstrated how the app was used to
annotate and provide a verbal commentary on the photos, which resulted in a movie which could be emailed from within the app.
This… Read more…

I'm pleased to report that we had a slightly higher attendance this month and it resulted in a very lively and hopefully informative meeting. We started off with the usual question-and-answer session and this did get slightly technical with a discussion on the use of IP addresses but I'm fairly sure that the people who were asking the questions went away happy and hopefully with a problem cured.

We then went… Read more…
