John opened the meeting, with 14 members present.

Mark provided a demonstration of iWeb, which he introduced by showing us some examples of websites which he had created. IWeb offers a variety of styles and templates to start with, and it is possible to set up an eye-catching site with no knowledge of HTML. As one would expect, there are good links to material produced using Apple's other iLife programmes, and good… Read more…

Two excellent presentation from our members at todays meeting, where time seemed to fly by... and the halls wireless internet connection worked first time! Easy internet access for us all.

We started off with a general chat about email, the various problems and potential security risks such as Google mail keeping copies of all emails sent, which generated quite a lot of discussion. Derek Wright then gave the first presentation on using Apple's… Read more…

We covered quite a lot of ground this month. The first part of the meeting was taken up with connecting us all to the internet. The school's access has to go through a proxy server so we had to learn how to use this instead of the normal "straight through" we're used to at home. Now of course, we could enter these details each time we're at the meeting then delete them when… Read more…

Not the highest of numbers, but a cracking good meeting nevertheless. Starting with a masterly trot around iLife 09 under the guidance of Chris from Solutions, we saw the new features of iPhoto and iMovie, and took a briefer look at Garageband and iWeb. All very interesting and easy to use.
After a pause for a quick cuppa, we had a short question and answer session, then people showed their pet applications or short… Read more…

There was a good attendance at this meeting - 20 people, including two new members, so the meeting started with mutual introductions. John then introduced the first speaker - himself, and proceeded to demonstrate the capabilities of Photoshop Elements 6, which does much of what the Adobe Photoshop can do, but in a more user friendly way, and at a fraction of the price. We saw how photographs and graphics can be manipulated and edited, and how… Read more…

The last meeting (for the foreseeable future) at Lytchett Matravers had a first hand talk on the antics and goings on in Apple's App Store. Then a demonstration of a latest version of an iPhone App (called Tasty) preceded a general 'free for all' and impromptu series of little presentations (including some useful tips on managing your songs in iTunes) by other members.

Meeting numbers were once again fairly low (11), though two… Read more…

Even though we had three or four regulars missing this month, we still had a pretty good attendance including Peter who has yet to buy his first ever computer (so won't be reading this!) Naturally, we were explaining why he'd be mad to buy anything other than a Mac.

Our Q&A session brought up among other things an ongoing problem with a dial-up modem which we'll try to fix "… Read more…

An expert presentation again from Mick Burrell - on setting up email for use when away from home. The usual q & a session had very few problems for solving - maybe we are all becoming experts!

we had hoped for a presentation from Solutions on the new features of iWork &/or iLife '09, but they are currently short-staffed and weren't able to help. we are also going to get a list of… Read more…

A lively meeting this time and considering how many of us use Mail for our email client, there seemed to be something new for everybody. The tips given tonight were aimed at making us more organised in the way we use mail. Several people had brought laptops so were working their way through, following the presentation and sorting their mail in new efficient ways.

Being in a much smaller room tonight meant a cosy… Read more…

The February meeting at Dorchester had a mainly geographical theme.

Steve started things off with a demonstration of how the Mac can be used successfully with a hand held GPS device. Garmin, who make GPS devices, are slowly becoming more Mac-aware, so that if you buy a GPS with a USB connection, they have software (Road Trip, see www8.garmin.com/macosx) which can upload planned routes to the device, and download… Read more…
