Washington Apple Pi will celebrate Earth Day by showing you how to preserve your digital assets. If you've had a Mac or iPhone or iPad or pretty much any Apple device for any length of time, you've stored a wealth of personal information, photos, diagrams, songs, movies, podcasts, forms, lists, passwords, and countless other things less classifiable. How do you preserve these items? How do you pass them on to others? And how did all that stuff get in there in the first place?
Most of these questions will be addressed at the General Meeting, held in our normal location at Enterprise Hall, George Mason University.
At the January General Meeting the Pi will demonstrate Parallels a suite of software that allows you to run non-Mac operating systems side-by-side with your Mac programs. There will also be a demonstration of Parallels Toolbox, a program from the same company that has not a thing to do with Parallels Desktop for Macintosh.
The Center for Internet Security has written a simple, clear set of guidelines for purchasing things online. While focused on the holidays, the guidelines cover general online shopping, including threats from using public wireless networks for financial transactions to fake sites designed to mimic legitimate businesses. Check out their one-page list of recommendations.
