Meetings

September 12, 2011

OS X Lion has been out for a while now and we've had a chance to really dig our boots and get to know pretty well. We've discovered a bunch of hidden features and we'll review those along with lots of tips and tricks that haven't really been publicized at all.

Our featured speaker at the next meeting will be Kimberly Hogan from Fujitsu. We've talked about how cool the Fujitsu ScanSnap scanners are and Kimberly will be on hand to show them off and especially demo the new portable scanner that is so small it can just fit in your notebook bag. It's really really cool. If going paperless and cleaning up your digital life is important to you, this is a meeting you won't want to miss this.

Of course, we'll also go over some current events in the Mac world as well as review some cool Mac & iOS apps and leave some time for Q&A.

Our meeting this month will be at the same location as last month. We thank Jan Chesne for allowing us to use the rec room at her townhome.

Address: 2700 Pearl St. in Santa Monica (Pearl & 27th). 

Directions: 27th St. going south from Pico ends in the entrance to the complex (In front it says Village Park Townhomes).  Go in the entrance, turn right, go over 2 speed bumps (street curves to the left) and park in the parking spaces or anywhere along the road where it doesn't say "No parking."  The rec room is across the road from the parking spaces and slightly south.  The rec room is off Unit 60 (please don't bother any of the residents).

OS X Lion is now here!  And, wow…this is a BIG upgrade. Lion is has some of the most important changes to the way OS X works since the original release over 10 years ago. 

We'll spend our next meeting going over some of the most obvious changes and new features and over the next few meetings, we'll spend some time going over more and more of the tidbits we discover.

If you haven't yet gone to Lion, you just made the switch or still haven't seen any of the new features, this is going to be a great meeting for you. We'll explain the upgrade process and we'll show off how the new big cat roars!

Of course, we'll also go over some current events in the Mac world as well as review some cool Mac & iOS apps and leave some time for Q&A.
