Top o’ the season to ye!
The holidays are almost upon us and that means it’s time for Apple users to get together to share some holiday spirit and talk about our favorite computers, phones, and tablets.
Join us on Monday, December 18th, for our last meeting of 2017. We’ll spend some time Apping & Trapping and some more time being appleCored. Plus, we’re going to have a holiday party with all the things you’d expect – cookies, egg nog, and other delights. And on top of that, we’ll be having an expanded holiday-sized drawing.
Sounds like a lot of fun so don’t miss it. We’re looking forward to seeing you at the bash.
So have a Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, Joyous Kwanzaa, and a celebratory Solstice.
Apps & Traps – Our essential monthly feature on interesting new products and services for iOS and OS X, brought to you by Dave Whitby.
appleSTEMs – Warren James presents interesting Apple science, technology, engineering, and math software. (On hiatus, while Warren’s free time is on hiatus…)
appleCore – Everyone says that iOS and macOS are intuitive and easy to use. If you believe that, I’ve got a bridge to sell you. Although iOS and macOS are easy to use after you’ve learned how to use them, actually learning to use them can be a bit confusing. Often, basic things are not explained because it is assumed that you already know them. We all know that that’s not always the case. So now the SGVAUG presents an on-going series of short talks about the core elements of iOS and macOS so that soon, you’ll be able to tell everyone, “Of course iOS and macOS are intuitively obvious”.
