Washington Apple Pi

A Community of Apple iPad, iPhone and Mac Users

March 30, 2019 General Meeting: Chuck Joiner of MUG Center and MacVoices

Chuck Joiner of MUG Center and MacVoices will be the Pi's guest, talking in all probability about MUGs (Macintosh User Groups), whatever Apple talks about at their March Special Event, and current technical trends, including possibly new technologies revealed at CES, which billed itself this year as "The Global Stage for Innovation." Note: the room (and building) we will use at George Mason is not our usual lair, but one building away. Check the link (⇧) for details.

Also, check out this terrifying video on electronic mail, with our Email Compendium, Volume 1. This contains lots of snippets from the General Meeting podcasts, focusing on the subject that brought the most fear and horror to the Q&A session moderators.

Makerspace with a Mac

Hope everyone had a great Turkey Day!  

We had great fun at a recent #ClubhouseSaturday trying out group Facetime. We connected with a longtime Pi Board Member and now west coast friend of the club Travis Good.  Travis has a work area that looks more like a well equipped makerspace, and sent us this short video so we could show it to our Pi members!   https://www.facebook.com/washingtonapplepi/videos/286413558651887/
